JUVENILE NONFICTION / History / United States / State & Local

The colony of Connecticut was instrumental in the formation of the United States. Connecticut was the birthplace of some of the most important patriots of the American Revolution, including Nathan Hale, who was a famous patriot spy. As readers explore the history of Connecticut during its time as a British colony, they also learn about topics relevant to social studies curricula, such as the French and Indian War and the protests against British taxation. Historical images and full-color photographs allow readers to see for themselves what life was like in this colony while gaining practice interpreting primary sources.
