Fundamental Orders of Connecticut

When? Where? Why?

The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut was signed on January 14, 1639 in the state of Connecticut. It was intended to conduct business in the General Court, to convene or adjourn the General Court, and to encourage participation in politics. The document also made the new settlement in Connecticut more of a democratic group.

21st Century Government

Thomas Hooker, Roger Ludlow, and John Haynes helped create what goes on in today's government. There are special laws that certain political groups can enforce, which was stated in the FOC. They also have certain powers, responsibilities and limitations they have to watch out for. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut created a great foundation to part of our American government.
