2003 - This year Americans remember the 300th anniversary
of Jonathan Edwards' birth and the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark
expedition, the 200th anniversary of Ohio statehood,
and the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers successful airplane flight.
Let us also remember Caleb Adams, who was publicly executed in Windham, Conn. on Nov. 29th, 1803 for
the brutal murder of 6-year-old Oliver Woodworth. These pages contain the
fascinating story of Caleb Adams's life and death, a forgotten
but important chapter of American history.
