We’ve all heard the story of the Charter Oak but why exactly was the Royal Charter of 1662 so important? To commemorate the Charter’s 350th anniversary, join State Historian and University of  Connecticut Professor Dr. Walter Woodward as he explores the Charter’s creation, its significance in state history, and the reasons for its continuing resonance in the present. 
 
He’ll be joined by attorney Wesley Horton and former Congressman and University of New Haven President Emeritus Lawrence DeNardis, PhD for a lively panel discussion moderated by the Connecticut Network’s Diane Smith.
