Connecticut Modern History
During the years of the American Revolution, Connecticut was the only one of the thirteen founding colonies of the United States of America in which the struggle against the mother country (England) was not accompanied by a struggle against the local government. This situation arose due to the self-government of Connecticut that existed at the beginning of the revolution, it is characteristic that Jonathan Trumbull was elected governor of the colony from 1769 to 1784, and the state government worked until the adoption of the US Constitution in 1789. During the Revolutionary War, several important events took place in Connecticut, including the landing of English troops in April 1777, which sacked and burned the city of Danbury.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, industry rapidly developed in Connecticut. From 1790, when the US Congress passed the “Patents Act” to 1930, more patents were issued per resident in Connecticut than in any other state. The most famous Connecticut inventor was Eli Whitney, who invented the cotton gin in 1794. The use of his invention dramatically increased the production of cotton and ensured the prosperity of the states of the US South. In addition, Whitney went down in history thanks to the successful use of the principle of interchangeability (spare parts) in the arms industry and as one of the creators of the milling machine.
In the 1890s, Connecticut became a center for furniture production, numerous textile factories were built in the state, and in the 19th century, weapons production began to grow rapidly. In 1810, the first pistol factory in the United States was launched in Middletown, in the fifties, the production of the world’s first Smith and Wesson repeating rifles was launched in New Haven, and in 1855, the Samuel Colt Armory (“Colt Arsenal”) opened in Hartford.. In the 19th century, Connecticut was nicknamed the “Arsenal of the Nation”.
In 1848, slavery was banned in Connecticut. The “Little Liberia” area in Bridgeport was one of the first in the Northeast of the United States, in which free black Americans compactly settled. During the Civil War, Connecticut was one of the main suppliers of weapons and ammunition for the army and navy of the northerners, several units were formed from state volunteers.
