Putting CRM on the map

Published July 21. 2013 4:00AM

Jerry Roberts of Deep River, who has led the Connecticut River Museum as executive director for the past seven years, is moving on to a new opportunity as battlefield historian for a National Parks Service grant project. The project will focus on the British raid on Essex in 1814. One of the final products of the project will be the nomination to the National Register of Historic Places of an area on both sides of the Connecticut River between Saybrook Point and North Cove, Essex, that is known as "Battle Site Essex."

The federal grant to CRM and the project was conceived by Roberts, who is also writing a book on the subject.
