Connecticut Map


With a population of 261,942 in 1810, Connecticut had 20 percent of New England’s people and strongly supported New England’s largely Federalist politics. Along with six other states, Connecticut voted for the Federalist presidential candidate, DeWitt Clinton of New York, in 1812, but ten states (and half of Maryland) supported Republican President James Madison for a second term and continuation of the war. Amos Doolittle engraved this map about 1800. (© Mystic Seaport, Maps and Charts Collection, Mystic, CT)
