The Connecticut State Library recognizes language can be problematic, especially historic language. Historic writings often include language that would be considered charged and/or offensive today. We often look to standards within librarianship. Researching this time period often requires variation in spelling and terms.

These are just some resources. Check with History & Genealogy too.

Hartford Convention and the War of 1812

Hartford Convention and the War of 1812

Also called the New England Convention. December 15, 1814 through January 5, 1815, delegates from New England states met for several weeks to draw up amendments to the US Constitution. The delegate were Federalists and their opposition to the War of 1812 had repercussions for the Federalist Party. The Hartford Convention did not consider secession, but was accused of this. The Federalist Party's stance on the War of 1812 and the Hartford Convention impacted their political power and the Connecticut Constitution of 1818.
