The charter of the original Connecticut Colony granted it a strip of land about seventy-five miles wide extending from ocean to ocean! In 1786 Connecticut ceded the bulk of her western lands to the Congress but reserved for herself a sizable strip in what is now northern Ohio. It lay etween the shore of Lake Erie and the forty-first parallel (just south of present Youngstown). It ran 120 miles west from the western boundary of Pennsylvania to a point just beyond Sandusky. This was "New Connecticut" Connecticut's Western Reserve.
