Fort Nathan Hale donates 200 books to the New Haven School System

NEW HAVEN - Fort Nathan Hale Restoration Projects, Inc. recently donated 200 books written by local author Deb Townshend to the New Haven schools, the organization said in a statement.
The books are a compendium of the history of the Revolutionary War era Black Rock Fort, and the Civil War era Fort Nathan Hale, which is located on New Haven’s east shore, the statement said.
Tours of the fort also were offered to all of the New Haven Schools, the statement said.
Special programs in the Spring and Fall are presented every year with period re-enactors and FNHRP members conducting the educational tours and talks, the statement said.
