Connecticut is the southernmost state in the New England region of the United States, abbreviated CT and capital Hartford. It is bordered by Rhode Island to the east, Massachusetts to the north, New York to the west, and Long Island Sound to the south. The largest city is Bridgeport. The state is part of New England, although parts of it are often grouped with New York and New Jersey as the Tri-State Area. It is named after the Connecticut River, which almost divides the state. The word “Connecticut” comes from various anglicized spellings of the Algonquian word for “long tidal river.”
The first European settlers in Connecticut were the Dutch, who established a small, short-lived settlement called Fort Hope in Hartford, at the confluence of the Park and Connecticut rivers. Half of Connecticut was originally part of the Dutch colony of New Netherland, which included much of the land between the Connecticut and Delaware rivers, although the first major settlements were established in the 1830s by the English. The colonies of Connecticut and New Haven created Fundamental Orders documents, considered the first constitutions in America. In 1662, the three colonies were united under one royal charter, making Connecticut a Crown Colony. It is one of the thirteen colonies, who rejected British rule in the American Revolution.
Connecticut is the third smallest state by area , the 29th most populous and the fourth most densely populated of the 50 states. It is known as the “Constitution State”, “Nutmeg State” and “Land of Permanent Habits”. He was influential in the development of the United States federal government.
