Connecticut is located in the northeastern United States, which is part of the New England region. Its capital is Hartford, one of the major cities is Bridgeport. Connecticut is the 48th state in the country. The origin of its name is associated with the expression, which is translated from the Algonquian language as "on a long river, prone to tides."
The first settlers of these places were the Dutch, who founded a settlement that later became the city of Hartford. Until 1667, the territory of the present state belonged to the New Netherlands. After a short period, it became the property of the British Empire. The future Connecticut colony was founded in 1636 by Thomas Hooker, a native of England. Connecticut was the first of 13 states to openly declare itself free from British rule. Since the state has a significant coastline, navigation has become traditional for the local places, which are located in the temperate zone.
