Shipping from the State of Vermont to Connecticut
In the 18th century, the British and French inhabited Vermont. However, both parties were at loggerheads until the French were defeated in the French and Indian war. After the defeat, Vermont was then relinquished to England. Also, in the course of the American Revolution, Vermont declared independence, distinguishing itself from the original 13 colonies, even though the Continental Congress refused to acknowledge it. Eventually, Vermont was admitted into the union as the 14th state in 1790. This happened 14 years after it had become an independent republic.
The state’s name is derived from the word “Montagne Verte”, which is French for Green Mountain. This name resulted in the state’s nickname “Green Mountain State”. Today, Vermont’s mountains are a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders. It is the country’s foremost producer of maple syrup and is the home to the popular Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

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 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”.
