Old Connecticut State House Field Trip

December 14, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm

Old Connecticut State House Field Trip
Students will visit the Old State House in downtown Hartford, Connecticut. This building served as the State Capitol building for the state of Connecticut beginning in 1796, and was the seat of the state’s government for much of its history. Students will receive a tour of the building, but the primary focus of the trip will be on the trial for the slave ship Amistad, which occurred in large part in this building in 1839. Students will be learning about this case as a part of a unit on the international slave trade in World History I class, and will receive deeper background on this case by visiting the building. Students also will bring money to eat lunch at State House Square Food Court right next to the building.
