|State of Connecticut|
United States of America
January 9, 1788 (5th)
Connecticut is a state located in the northeastern region of the United States, bordered by Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts. It was one of the thirteen colonies that claimed independence from Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War.
Jonathan Trumbull was governor of the colony. He was one of the few colonial governors to side with the Patriots, prompting suspicions from the Colonial Assassins. They eventually he discovered he was a member of the Templars, and kept watch over him until his death in 1785.
In 1777, the British Army occupied Danbury and threatened to burn the city having become drunk from raiding the local rum stores. The Assassins alerted the local militias who launched an attack, but this prompted the British to set fire.
The Culper Ring were active in New Haven, and the Assassins escorted some of their members to safety in West Point, New York, during Tryon's raid. In 1781, the Assassins attempted to kill Benedict Arnold at the Battle of Groton Heights, but were unable to reach him.
Nikolai Orelov immigrated to Hartford, Connecticut with his family in 1917. After Anna and Nadya were abducted by the FBI during the Palmer Raids, Nikolai raised his son Kenya alone in the woods outside Manchester until his death in 1928.
