Stories from Hartford's Grassroots
“For the Hartford installment of their long-running Wicked cities series, the folks at History Press couldn’t have picked a much better author for the job than Steve Thornton, the longtime labor organizer, grassroots historian and raconteur extraordinaire. Thornton has been bringing the un- and underknown tales from Hartford’s past for years through his Shoeleather History walking tours. Wicked Hartford cobbles together stories from a broad and diverse background. The deeply immoral parts of Sam Colt’s reign as Hartford’s most famous industrialist, fascist priests, and the stories of Hartford’s prostitution industry all get a mention.”
