Silver Tea in Ansonia features history lesson

Actress and history interpreter Judith Kalaora performs as Deborah Sampson Gannett, who served in the Continental Army pretending to be a man. In the performance Kalaora changes from a dress and petticoat and dons the uniform. 

ANSONIA - Those who attended the Derby Historical Society's 24th annual Silver Tea fundraiser Monday enjoyed lunch, tea, and punch served by docents in Colonial garb, and learned a slice of interesting history about the country's early years.

The annual Silver Tea drew a (mostly female) crowd of 165 to Molto Bene Italian Kitchen.

Please check out Register photojournalist Mara Lavitt's photographs of the event, and read more about Kalaora's performance here.
