Delaware’s Past in Postcards

Delaware’s State House was originally located in New Castle.

It is the oldest State House in the nation. The central section was built in 1732 and the wings off each end were added in 1765.

In 1777 Dover became the Capital of Delaware.

The State House, in Dover, DE,  was erected in 1792 to house both the State of Delaware and Kent County governments.They shared the building until 1873. This building currently houses a museum.

Legislative Hall, our current Capital building, is home to the House and Senate Chambers as well as the offices of the Governor and Secretary of State.

The original structure was completed and dedicated in 1933. Four wings have been added to Legislative Hall since that time: One to the North and one to the South in the late 1960’s, and two to the East in 1994.

What's so scary about a Blue Hen?

You obviously never met a blue hen before, you must be new. I have a long history with Blue Hens, so I’m gonna tell you a little story.

On December 9, 1775, the Continental Congress resolved that a military battalion be raised from the lower three counties along the Delaware River. Thus, the Delaware regiment was born—a group of eight companies representing New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties.

The second company was from Kent County and commanded by Capt. John Caldwell, an owner of gamecocks. The troops often amused themselves by staging cockfights with a breed known as the Kent County Blue Hen, recognizable for its blue plumage.

The renown of these chickens spread rapidly during this time when cockfighting was a popular form of amusement, and the “Blue Hens’ Chickens” developed quite a reputation for ferocity and fighting success.

Capt. Caldwell’s company likewise acquired a considerable reputation for fighting prowess in engagements with the British at Long Island, White Plains, Trenton and Princeton, and soon was nicknamed “Caldwell’s Gamecocks.” The company was part of Col. John Haslet’s first Delaware regiment, which reported for duty near the outset of the Revolutionary War in January 1776. In August 1781, remnants of the regiment were still battling at Eutaw Springs, S.C. Although often referred to as “The Fighting Delawares,” Haslet’s regiment also won the nickname “The Blue Hens’ Chickens.” It was formally adopted by the Delaware General Assembly in 1939 when the Blue Hen Chicken was named the official state bird.

A small bird, but very ferocious. This is why you should
