Journeys: Boys of the Chinese Educational Mission

Seymour Public Library History Program-

Presented by Christina Rewinski-

The Connecticut Museum of Culture & History-

Yung Wing, the first Chinese student to graduate from a US University, came to America under the sponsorship of a missionary and received his degree from Yale in 1854. In 1872 he founded what came to be known as the Chinese Educational Mission, headquartered in Hartford, CT. Over nine years, 120 boys from China, barely teenagers, came to Connecticut to participate in a cultural and educational exchange program.  The boys boarded ships and trains, leaving everything familiar, with the expectations of a nation on their shoulders. The story of the boys of the Chinese Educational Mission is a story of hopes, dreams, sacrifice, and the life-changing experience of international exchange.

The Weekend the British Burned Danbury

"The Weekend the British Burned Danbury"

 Mike Allen's Local His-Stories

About the Program:

It was 1777, early in the Revolutionary War, and a weekend military mission into inland Connecticut was supposed to be a seminal military victory for the British in their attempts to put down the Patriot uprising. The objective was to march from Long Island Sound to Danbury and remove it as a key supply center for the Patriots. It was the first time the British had marched inland to do battle during the war. It didn't work out as exactly as planned.
