History of New Haven: Register, Lincoln and a Bit of Music
The Hartford Courant is - famously - the oldest continuously published newspaper in the US. But the New Haven Register has its long and storied history.
This year is the 200th anniversary of the paper - and today, where we live, we’ll talk about the history of the Register, and the city it covers.
From the early days of the paper, to the Amistad case, from Abraham Lincoln’s election, to his death, and the role of New Haven’s longest-running institution, Yale University in the city’s history.
Also, WNPR’s Diane Orson brings us the voices of New Haven musicians that played in the original productions of some of the great American musicals at the Shubert Theatre, and the old Oakdale Tent.
