"Where are you from, Mr. Rogers? Is it New Haven?"
Abraham Erskine to Steve Rogers[src]

New Haven is the second-largest city in the state of Connecticut.


Steve Rogers, a young man from New York City, tried to enlist for military duty in World War II, as his strong moral convictions made him perceive he had no right to stay behind when men were risking their lives fighting in the war. Despite his motivation, Rogers was rejected due to various health and physical issues.

Rogers was not discouraged by this rejection, and he tried to enlist again for a grand total of five attempts. In order to have more chances, and despite being illegal, Rogers lied about his origin on the enlistment form, stating in one of his attempts that he was born in New Haven, Connecticut.

Although not approved in any of these attempts, he impressed Doctor Abraham Erskine, who allowed him to serve in the Strategic Scientific Reserve.[1]

William Rawlins lived in New Haven where he attended Yale University. He graduated in 1984 with a degree in business before moving onto Harvard University.[2]
