A closer look at the series

It was 200 years ago — Dec. 1, 1812 to be precise — when volume one, edition one of what would become the New Haven Register was published out of a one-room Church Street office.

Known as the Columbian Register (it would become the New Haven Evening Register in 1846), the paper got its start as a voice for New Haven shipping interests being squeezed by President James Madison’s trade embargo during the War of 1812.

As part of our bicentennial celebration, we today launch our “200 at 200” series as a tribute to Greater New Haven’s rich sports history.
