Civil War lecture reveals state’s important role By Everett Bishop The Citizen

More than 150 years ago, America’s deadliest war ended, taking over half a million lives with it.

Slate School recognized for environmental design By Everett Bishop The Citizen

Slate School in North Haven recently received the Connecticut Green Building Council’s 2019 Atelier Ten Award for Excellence. Atelier Ten is a group of environmental design consultants based in New Haven. “We’re one of the most environmentally friendly schools in the country,” said Jennifer Staple-Clark,

one of the school’s founders. “So everything that was put into the buildings we made sure was red list free.” The red list includes items typically found in building supplies that may include lead, mercury and asbestos. Slate even went as far as to avoid using metal ductwork in each of its buildings, instead opting for a cloth duct system that is machine washable – a system the school has

dubbed “the cloud.” The school has committed itself to work and teach as “a part of nature” according to Staple-Clark. “We wanted the school to be in harmony with nature. We wanted this to be the healthiest environment for our students and our faculty,” she said. The 25-acre campus, located at 124 Mansfield Road, See Slate, A5

The Civil War was one of the nation’s greatest tragedies, but even in the midst of that chaos Connecticut rose up to become an industrial powerhouse with factories producing guns, uniforms and artillery for Union soldiers. Additionally, Connecticut provided a larger percentage of its populace as Union troops than any other state. On Tuesday, Oct. 29, during a presentation at North Haven Memorial Library, Hamish Lutris, associate professor of history, political science and geography at Capital Community College, educated North Haven residents about Connecticut’s role in the war as well as some lesser known facts about that time period. Here are a few of those obscure facts: Connecticut Gov. William Buckingham financed the creation of 5,000 muskets

Buckingham enjoyed enormous wealth during his lifetime. After patenting the process of the vulcanization of rubber, he became a millionaire. When Buckingham got into office, “the state armory does have 3,000 muskets in it – and they were all from the War of 1812 – and most of them did not work at all,” Lutris said. When the state denied the governor’s proposal for it to foot the bill for new muskets, Buckingham took it upon himself to supply Connecticut with his own money.

Divisiveness at Yale led to widespread campus protest. See Civil War, A8

Longtime librarian ready to begin new chapter 2010; the North Haven Library was among the first in the nation to offer these (as featured in a New York Times article and on NPR.)

LaTerza joined the staff at the North Haven Library as Head of Children's Service in November, 1985. She immediately took the department under her wing, and created countless new programs for children including Adventures in Art, Baby Bounce, Sensory Storytime, and a Story Walk along the town green.

LaTerza’s Summer Reading Program for children was unparalleled and enjoyed by over 1,000 young people each summer.

LaTerza was responsible for developing the entire children's department collection, including an extensive selection of fairy tales and special collections such as "sick kid kits" and "sensory kits."

Even if you weren't a regular library user, you were still likely influenced by LaTerza. In 2014, she worked with over 50 local businesses to help sponsor the town-wide "One Town, One Book" program, Reading is Your Golden Ticket. This program was designed to create an experience shared by the commu-

new programs on art and history. In 2016, LaTerza was appointed to her final position at the library, Director of Library Services. In this position, she again added her special touch to the library and brought more of her wonderful ideas to fruition. She added more displays, rearranged the second floor to offer more comfortable seating, and created much needed quiet study space.

In 2015, LaTerza became the Assistant Director of Library Services. In this role, she brought her vision to the rest of the library, creating enticing displays that incorporated the bookstore feel. She increased programming for adults, bringing in many

awards. The goal was fostering a relationship between students and the natural world that surrounds them every day.


“Nature is the master teacher,” Mountcastle said. “It can provide all of the lessons we could hope for.”

“Not only is it a beautiful place, but this place was born of the collective ideas of so many people,” she said. “It was just the most beautiful, collaborative period of my entire life.” Part of that collaboration was between Slate and Patriquin Architects, which designed and constructed the school. According to its website, Patriquin “is dedicated to the development of elegant, sustainable design solutions.” But for Slate School it was never about winning

Civil War From A1

“In 1860, Connecticut was divided almost perfectly evenly between Democrat and Republican,” Lutris said. At the start of the Civil War, divided opinions about the war started to cause conflict in the state. In January of 1861, Confederate sympa-

thizers at Yale University ran up a Confederate flag at one of the main campus buildings. In response, Yale students took down the flag and replaced it with the nation’s stars and stripes. The first picture ever taken of Bridgeport was taken during a riot. The Bridgeport Farmer was a pro-Confederate newspaper that operated during the war. So in a rallying cry to

crush the opposition, proUnion residents marched to the offices of the Farmer and wreaked havoc. “Everything from the office was tossed onto the streets. All the printing machines, the presses, the paper, everything,” Lutris said. “The editor of the Farmer had to jump out of a second story window to avoid being hanged.” The scene at the Bridgeport Farmer was captured in a photograph, the first photograph of Bridgeport in history.

“When you hear the name shoddy, it doesn’t sound like a good name to have,” said Lutris. “But at that time, shoddy did not mean the same thing it does now. If you ever wear blue jeans, you put your hands in the

“Abraham Lincoln called him ‘my old man Neptune’

“Ever since then, shoddy has come to mean poorly made or something that you can’t trust,” Lutris said.

Mixing this shoddy with a glue base meant that uniforms for the troops could be mass produced much easier. However, the glue that was used was water soluble. When the soldiers would sweat or get rained on, the uniforms disintegrated.

“This is the single biggest expansion of the Navy we have seen in our history,” Lutris said.

During the war, Willimantic was a major hub for textiles. In fact, the city became known as the shoddy capital of the world because of this.

Gideon Welles was born in Glastonbury, which is entirely landlocked. However, after meeting with President Abraham Lincoln, Welles was made Secretary of the Navy during the Civil War. And it was all thanks to his beard.

Welles founded both the Democratic and Republican parties in the state and also helped found the Hartford Times. Thanks to his power (and his beard) he sat at the helm of the Union Navy, which started at only 35 ships and grew to 2,300 ships by the end of the war under Welles’ leadership.

Willimantic was pretty shoddy back in the day.
