Dear Jeff:

It really is a fascinating "State" of mind or mindset when you can pick geographic state, any city, any point of interest on a map & find out superbly interesting factoids on it. Today we focus on the State of Connecticut.

P. The city of Gordon, Connecticut was where the world's Ist conventional nuclear powered submarine was built in MCMLIV (1954)-the U.S.S. Nautilus.

Q. Rhode Island & Connecticut never actually ratified the XVIIIth (18th) Amendment to the United States Constitution (the prohibition of alcohol, later repealed.)

R. The Hartford Courant is the oldest print newspaper in the United States still being published. It was established in MDCCLXIV (1764.)
