Connecticut in Southern VictoryEdit
Politically, Connecticut (along with the rest of the New England states) was a Conservative Democratic state. For example, the state gave its electoral votes to Calvin Coolidge in 1928. However, Coolidge lost the election to Socialist Party candidate, incumbent Vice President Hosea Blackford, by a narrow margin. The state again voted for Coolidge in 1932. He won this election in a landslide, but died of a heart attack on January 5, 1933, less than a month before his inauguration of February 1. This resulted in his running mate Herbert Hoover becoming President instead.
Connecticut in The Two GeorgesEdit
In the aftermath of the Seven Years' War, Connecticut was one of a number of colonies that chafed under unrepresentative direct British rule. However, a new arrangement was peacefully negotiated forming the North American Union. Thus, Connecticut was one of the oldest Provinces of the NAU.
