Murder in the Vermont Woods: A Story About Race, Class, and Gender in the 19th Century

Digital Event
February 9, 2022: 6:00 pm

This event will be offered virtually via Zoom. Please contact or call (802) 730-5260 for questions and registration.

Historian Jill Mudgett tells the story of an Indigenous man from southern New England who came to central Vermont during the late 19th century and was the victim of a murder. Recreating community connections in a rural Vermont hill town, this story is about poverty, racism, disability, and gendered violence against women, but is also an account of Indigenous movement and choice despite great obstacles.
