Historian The beginning of connecticut: Connecticut was founded in 1636 by Thomas Hooker. Connecticut began as an english colony or province. Major Events/Developments: In 1637 the colonists were in conflict with the pequot tribe. The war lasted 11 months and the largest battle was when the pequot tribe set fire to the colonists warehouses, also attacked and killed settlers who went too far from their palisade fortresses. The winner of the war was the english when they made an offensive attack on the natives by burning their homes and killing anyone who escaped the fires.
Historian Unique history: The creation of the song yankee doodle makes this colony unique because the song became their names like they were known as yankees. During the civil war and revolutionary war the “yankees” would sing yankee doodle. Also the state animal of Connecticut is the sperm whale because of the states whaling industry and it was the largest in the united states during the 1800’s and they had a whaling industry was for the oil created by the blubber and the oil was used for lamps. Primary Resource: One good resource that comes from connecticut is whale oil. The quote: “the importance of whaling in Connecticut and tells how the whale’s blubber was used to make oil and machine lubricant”. I found that whale oil was a big part of connecticut because of its use of light. Since whaling was very prominent at the time the whale that they killed the most (the sperm whale) became Connecticut's state animal.
