Overview

Excerpt from Colonial Connecticut

This is the fifth study of the colonial period prepared and published by the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Ohio, for use in the seventh and eighth grades, to help teachers and pupils to a clearer understanding of this important period of American history.

The first four studies - Virginia, New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, were written by Mrs. Mary D. Phillips. Miss Julia E. Hickok takes up and carries forward the work which Mrs. Phillips left upon her removal from the State, following the completion of the Rhode Island monograph. Miss Hickok follows the high standard set by her predecessor - a standard of simplicity and clearness, of vivid statement, with the selection of the larger and more essential features in the life and thought of each colony, thus making clear their individual contributions in the making of America.

What was the central idea for which Connecticut stood? In many respects its history was like that of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, but the distinct contribution which this colony made was "The First Written Constitution in History, Creating a Government," the Federal Constitution following the Federal principle developed in Connecticut. "The Birthplace of American Democracy" is Hartford. This colony, also like Rhode Island, stood for absolute freedom of thought and its expression. The story of such a colony is well worth careful study.

I wish to express renewed appreciation for the work of the society which has made such a study possible for the pupils in the schools of this and other cities.
