Industrial Genealogy

We often think of companies as individual entities.  This isn't quite true.  The founders came from some place and worked with somebody to learn and develop to the point of being the founder of a company.  So it is in the microcosm of Hartford, CT, important to me for the arms making that flourished there once upon a time. 

In searching for other information I ran across a neat article, "The Miracle on Capital Avenue" by Ellsworth Grant. Neat stuff showing how companies of the 1850s are linked to those of today and to our country's former great economic strength.
