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

Live Event
January 11: 6:30 pm

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.
