    Default Fun Facts

    I thought it would be good to have a thread about Fun Facts about Connecticut. I'll go first.

    Connecticut was the first to bring lollipops to the market. A man named George Smith brought a lollipop machine to the public in 1908. The sweet treat was actually named after a well known racehorse in those times.

    Now it's your turn. What fun fact do you have to share with us today?

    Yankee Doodle is the state song. It is to remind us of the part Connecticut played in the revolutionary war.
