No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The colony of Connecticut was founded by religious dissenters from England and Massachusetts -- the Puritans. Their strict moral code and fierce independence helped to develop the prevailing values important to New England: an emphasis on education, self-government, industry thrift, and the rights of the individual. The experiences of the Connecticut colonists led to their becoming early leaders in the fight for American independence.
