Peter C. Vermilyea: Wicked Litchfield County

When: Sat., Sept. 24, 3-4:30 p.m. 2016

A Book Signing presented as part of Millerton's Fall for Art Festival. Thieves, rumrunners and rapscallions all color the unsavory side of Litchfield County history. Townspeople accused women of witchcraft simply for not bearing enough children in the early days of the region. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Owen Sullivan and William Stuart took advantage of the county’s isolated stretches and a currency shortage to build counterfeiting empires.
