Our Plural History

This guide highlights library resources related to pluralism in the United States, with a focus on immigrant and ethnic groups in the Connecticut River Valley of western Massachusetts. It is designed as a supplement to STCC's Web site "Our Plural History". There is a page of resources giving an overview of the history of the Connecticut River Valley and it's cities, with separate pages on the chronological themes of the Web site: "First Peoples", "Colonial Period", "Resisting Slavery", "Industrialization and Immigration", and "Recent Arrivals". You may contact me with questions using the information in the box at the right.
