History 200, “American Cities,” is a course at the University of Saint Joseph, Connecticut, taught by Dr. Jennifer Cote. Our theme this year is the brutal murder of a Hartford resident in the late 19th century. Students will use this murder as a launchpad to develop broad interpretive frameworks in order to understand what happened in the incident and its aftermath. This blog is where they’ll record their thoughts as they work through the term.
