Today Americans depend on trade with China for many of the consumer goods that make our lives comfortable. The English Puritans who settled the Connecticut Valley in the 17th century also turned to global trade to make their lives as comfortable as they had been at home in England. The Connecticut River was the great water highway that connected the producers of these natural resources to the broad markets around the Atlantic Rim.

Brenda Milkofsky leads our discussion on Global Trade, 17th century style. Currently working as an Independent Museum Professional, Milkofsky retired as Senior Curator from the Connecticut River Museum where she served as the Founding Director from 1979 to 1993. For nine years she served the Wethersfield Museum and Historical Society as Director. Brenda has worked on collection projects for the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, CT, for the Merchant Marine Museum, at King’s Point, for Essex Historical Society and other Connecticut institutions.
