Aaron Dwight Stevens History Walk

 5/22/2021 @ 10:00 am

In October 1859, Lisbon-born and Norwich-raised Aaron Dwight Stevens, with John Brown and others, raided the Federal Arsenal at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia. This led directly to the Civil War just one year later, and the elimination of slavery in America. Authors Vic Butsch and Tommy Coletti, who wrote “A Journey to the Gallows” will be pleased to share some of Dwight’s amazing story with you. The tour is centered at the Norwichtown Green where we will visit his home, church and school. Dwight is a little known, but important American hero who helped wake our nation up to a new day.
