Episode 34: Connecticut takes a bite out of New Haven

In this episode, we cover what happened when Connecticut finally got its charter in the fall of 1662 (like the one pictured, but not the same — the picture shows a different colonial charter from the same period). And we see that colonial charters, like toothbrushes, weren’t really meant to be shared.

Episode 28: The Mohegan-Narragansett war, part V

In this post, we cover relations with and among the Algonquians from 1656 until 1659, featuring some new bit players, like the Podunks. And we reintroduce John Winthrop, Jr. (pictured above), who will be a central figure in Connecticut politics for a while.

(And, no, the title of the episode isn’t a mistake; listen for an explanation.)
