The CT State Library, in collaboration with the Connecticut Heritage Foundation, is pleased to announce a limited edition republishing of Captain Daniel W. Strickland ‘s Connecticut Fights, The Story of the 102nd Regiment which was privately published in 1930 by Captain Strickland.
In 1937 the State Library purchased from Captain Strickland the unsold bound and unbound copies of the book. The unbound copies remained in the State Library until this year, when the decision was made to bind them and issue them as a limited edition commemorative volume to mark the centennial of World War I.
A new introduction has been written by Walter Woodward, State Historian and a new afterword by Brigadier General Fran Evon which brings the story of the 102nd up to the present.
The limited edition of 275 will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Price: $150 (includes shipping and handling within the United States) $175 for volumes shipped Internationally.
All proceeds to support the State Library’s Remembering WWI Project.
