The Connecticut River is the largest river in New England, flowing south from the Connecticut Lakes in northern NewHampshire, along the border between NewHampshire and Vermont, through Western Massachusetts and central Connecticut into Long Island Sound at Fenwick, Connecticut.
The Fort at Number 4, now Charlestown, NewHampshire, was the northernmost English settlement on the river until the end of the French and Indian War in 1763.
In the Treaty of Paris (1783), ending the American Revolutionary War, the new border between NewHampshire and what was to become the Province of Canada was defined to include the "northwesternmost headwaters of the Connecticut".
