Two United States Navy ships have been named for the capital of Connecticut. The first was the USS Hartford, which served prominently in the American Civil War. The second is the USS Hartford (SSN 768), launched in 1993 and still in active service.
Hartford is the home of the University of Connecticut football team, and has been home to a few well-supported professional football teams in the past. It also is within easy reach from Boston, Massachusetts (102 miles) and New York City (117 miles).
