  • Historical Society Program: "The Nutmegger Who Was Almost President," By A Descendent Of LaFayette Foster

    LaFayette Foster is a name largely forgotten today, but in his time he was an important and well known figure who served as President Pro Tempore of the Senate and was thus acting Vice President under Andrew Johnson, following Lincoln’s assassination.

    Newtown Historical Society host an examination of Foster’s life and achievements through a presentation by Tom Vogt on Monday, May 13. The program will begin at 7:30 pm, and will be in the community room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.
