Newtown, Connecticut has been known for one thing since the shooting there in December. But the town has a long and colorful history, and that's what Daniel Cruson wants people to think about when they think of Newtown. He's the town historian, and the author of a new book called "Legendary Locals of Newtown." He spoke with WSHU's Craig LeMoult.
