Like most Connecticuters, you probably know that Connecticut was one of the first settled colonies in the United States. Five bucks if you can name all 13 colonies…but like me, I’m sure you never wondered or frankly cared how the states were divided up and given borders. Well, YouTuber Jacoby Nixon put together a video timelapse (set to Zedd’s “Clarity” for the “Oh my god, how does it end?!” factor) of the evolution of Connecticut over the last 380 plus years we’ve been around.
By the way, the 13 original colonies are Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
