On April 30, 2015, the Friends of Fort Trumbull State Park will present the first speaker in the 2015 series entitled Windows on the World of Fort Trumbull. This series of programs has been based upon the periods in history that were significant to Fort Trumbull.

In 2010, in honor of John Hanrahan-the first President of the organization- the Friends commissioned a set of window panels by Artist and Teacher- Edward Tuccio- to enlighten visitors to the park as to what is available inside the Visitors Center.
Using the window panels in the Visitorís Center as a guide, June Hoye, the program co-chair, has planned presentations on the Role of the Fort in The Revolutionary War, The Civil War, World War I & II, and the Cold War. The History of the Coast Guard at the Fort has also been included.
To introduce the series, Edward Baker, the retired Executive Director of the New London County Historical Society, located at the Shaw Mansion in downtown New London, will speak on The Battle of Fort Trumbull and Fort Griswold. Prior to his time at the Historical Society, Mr. Baker supervised work in the Interpretation Department at the Mystic Seaport, and before that as the Farm and Garden supervisor at Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Gaining and sharing insights to the past have been the primary focus of his work.
The presentation will be at the Fort Trumbull Conference Center in New London at 7 p.m. The presentation is open to the public but seating is limited. Refreshments will follow the presentation. New members are always welcome. www.fortfriends.org
