Shipping from the State of Connecticut to Delaware
On January 9, 1788, Connecticut became a U.S. state. It is one of the original 13 colonies as well as one of the six New England states. Connecticut is the third smallest state by area, the 29th most populous, and the 4th most densely populated of the 50 states. It was influential in the development of the federal government of the United States.
Connecticut is the southernmost state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Rhode Island to the east, Massachusetts to the north, New York to the west, and Long Island Sound to the south. Its capital is Hartford and its most populous city is Bridgeport. It is part of New England, although portions of it are often grouped with New York and New Jersey as the tri-state area. The state is named for the Connecticut River which approximately bisects the state. The word “Connecticut” is derived from various anglicized spellings of an Algonquian word for “long tidal river”.
Connecticut’s official nickname is “The Constitution State”. It is also well-known by these nicknames “The Nutmeg State”, “The Provisions State”, and “The Land of Steady Habits”. The state tree is the White Oak, the state bird is the American Robin and the state flower is the Mountain Laurel. The state motto is ‘He who transplanted still sustains’ (Latin: Qui Transtulit Sustinet).

On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, and has since been known as “The First State”. Delaware occupies a small niche in the Boston–Washington, D.C., urban corridor along the Middle Atlantic seaboard. It is part of the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and some islands and territory within the Delaware River. It is the 2nd smallest and 6th least populous state, but the 6th most densely populated. Delaware’s largest city is Wilmington and the capital is Dover.
Delaware is known by many nicknames “The First State”, “The Diamond State”, “Blue Hen State” and “Small Wonder”. The state tree is the American Holly, the state bird is the Blue Hen and the state flower is the Peach Blossom. The state motto is ‘Liberty and Independence’.
