Historical Footnotes: Bulletin of the Stonington Historical Society has been issued quarterly since November 1963. It is devoted to publishing research and documents on local and regional history. In addition, it reports major activities of the Stonington Historical Society. It is supported by membership dues and by local advertisers.
Historical Footnotes seeks to touch on the major themes of Stonington history:
- Its centuries-old links with the sea.
- The battles fought by Stonington men and women to preserve their liberties.
- The enduring groups and families within the community.
- The transformations from colonial settlement to thriving seaport to diverse twenty-first-century town.
- And the individuals -- such as Captain John Mason and Nathaniel B. Palmer, discoverer of Antarctica -- who shaped the town's history.
The editor welcomes manuscripts on these and related subjects.
