Hartford, Conn. (WTNH) - A snapshot of life in Connecticut went into the ground today at the Governor's Residence. The state buried a time capsule to celebrate Connecticut's 375th anniversary.
So what's inside? A flash drive with political cartoons and articles about this year's local and world events. There's also a UConn women's basketball souvenir book signed by Coach Geno Auriemma. And there's a dress uniform patch and a combat uniform patch representing each of the Connecticut National Guard units serving in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2010.
"We knew then that we had a story to tell and that we wanted to make history ourselves, we wanted to be able to share that story about Connecticut, about our heritage," Gov. Jodi Rell said.
The capsule will be opened in 25 years for the state's 400th anniversary.
"We wish more than anything that this time capsule will be opened in a Connecticut that is even stronger, happier and even more successful and secure than it is today," said Walt Woodward, state historian.
There will be a record of what was put in that time capsule at the state library.
