There is no completely satisfactory history of the state. Johnston's Connecticut is well written, but his theories regarding the relationship between the townships and the state are not generally accepted. by historical scholars. There is' a good chapter in Herbert L. Osgood's History of the American Colonies in the Seventeenth Century (New York, 1904). Connecticut as a Colony and as a State (Hartford, 1904; 4 vols.) is written from secondary sources, as also is G. H. Hollister's History of Connecticut (to 1818) (2 vols. Hartford, 1857). Perhaps the most satisfactory historical work is that of Benjamin Trumbull, A Complete History of Connecticut from 1630 to 1764 (New Haven, 1804-1818). E. E. Atwater's History of the Colony of New Haven (New Haven, 1881) is also valuable, and the monograph of C. H. Levermore, " The Republic of New Haven," and that of C. M. Andrews " The River Towns of Connecticut " in The Johns Hopkins University. Studies (Baltimore, 1886 and 1889) should be consulted for the institutions of the colonial period. For the sources, see Colonial Records of Connecticut (15 vols., Hartford, 1850-189o); The Records of the Colony and the Plantation of New Haven (2 vols., Hartford, 1857-1858) and Records of the State of Connecticut (2 vols., Hartford, 1894-1895). The Collections (Hartford 186o et seq.) of the Connecticut Historical Society contain valuable material, especially the papers of Governor Joseph Talcott.; and the Papers (New Haven, 1865 et seq.) of the New Haven Colony Historical Society are extremely valuable for local history; but a vast number of documents relating to the colonial and state periods, now in the state library at Hartford, have never been published.
