Details

Connecticut traces the history of life in the early colony. It covers early exploration and the establishment of a Dutch trading post along the Connecticut River, the success of Connecticut merchants at trading goods, and the colony's 1650 law requiring that every town with more than 50 people have a school. Later chapters discuss the battles and events of the Revolutionary War, such as a failed British raid on Greenwich in 1779, and they also discuss Connecticut's important role in forming and ratifying the Constitution.

Sidebars include:
  • Life on the frontier
  • Pilgrims and Puritans
  • The charter oak
  • The New England Primer, 1690
  • Israel Putnam
  • Nathan Hale
  • Jonathan Trumbull.
