Alex Bugaeff (Author)
"...Molly Pitcher kept firing the cannon. The smoke stung her eyes. The smell of gunpowder burned her nose. Musket shot and cannonballs were whistling past her left and right..."
Find out what happened to Molly. Find out about the War of Jenkins' Ear, the Indian Prophecy and Elizabeth Key, as a grandfather tells his grandchildren the story of how our country came to be.
Get to know the Founding Fathers as real people. Learn how 200 years of nation-building gave birth to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Here is a new way to pass along to your children and granchildren the story of America's beginning. It is the first in the Grandfather Series - books that bring our heritage to life.
Visit The Noah Webster House
The Noah Webster House museum is located in the historic house where Noah Webster was born in 1758 and lived as a child. Noah Webster created the first American dictionary and the Blue-Backed Speller, a widely used schoolbook for American children. The Noah Webster Foundation restored Webster's home and opened it as a museum in the late 1960s. About 10,000 schoolchildren and thousands of others visit the museum every year. Workshops, summer camps and a history club are just a few of the activities sponsored by the museum, which is also available for rent for private events. In addition to the museum, the site is the home of the West Hartford Historical Society.
Keeler Tavern Museum Tour
The Keeler Tavern Museum was founded by the Keeler Tavern Preservation Society, Inc. in 1966 as a living museum of colonial history within the town of Ridgefield, Connecticut. It is the Society's mission to preserve and protect the Keeler Tavern, a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1982, that embodies the life of the community from the early 19th century through the mid 20th century. The Society is committed to promoting Ridgefield's history and heritage by providing educational and cultural programs that interpret the past for present and future generations.
