More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Connecticut is known as The Constitution State due to its state pride in the Connecticut Colony’s Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, which provided the colony’s framework from 1639 to 1662. It governed the towns of Windsor, Hartford, and Wethersfield and was a civil equivalent to a Puritan church covenant. It called for a General Court to be held every April and September, and set forth the regulations and conditions of nominations, elections, and the General Court itself. It also permitted the imposition of taxes, distribution of land, and punishments for misdemeanors.
In the 19th century, Connecticut historian John Fiske claimed that the Fundamental Orders were the first written constitution, leading to Connecticut eventually adopting The Constitution State as its official nickname.
