The Connecticut-based newspaper was established in 1764 by printer Thomas Green as the "Connecticut Courant" and is known for being America's oldest newspaper in continuous publication, according to its website. In fact, the Courant's slogan to this day is "older than the nation." The publication boasts some impressive historical moments, too.
Today, the Hartford Courant is owned by the Tribune Co., and boasts a daily circulation of 120,000.
