The Connecticut State Library publishes Volumes 18 & 19 of the Public Records of the State of Connecticut

In October, the Connecticut State Library published Volumes 18 & 19 of the Public Records of the State of Connecticut.  Volume 18, 1816-1817, covers the last session of the General Assembly under the Charter of 1662.  This session called for a State constitutional convention.  Volume 19, 1818, covers the convention and the ratification debate.  For the past five years, Dr. Douglas M. Arnold, who edited recent volumes, has tackled this project.  The State Library utilized money from the Historical Documents Preservation Program to fund the project.  Copies of both volumes will be distributed to public and academic and selected special libraries statewide. The volumes are also available for purchase from the State Library (order now - link to the PDF order form).
