The Quiz: Which state is home to the “thrice cursed” island of Captain Kidd?

Explanation : Legend has it that Charles Island — located off the coast of Milford, Connecticut — has been “thrice cursed.” First was the Paugussett tribe, who lost their sacred land to the English who settled there around 1640. The second curse came from Scottish sailor and pirate Captain Kidd, who buried treasure there in 1699 and cursed it to ward off treasure hunters. The third curse was another group of sailors who allegedly buried treasure on Charles Island in the 1700s.

Correct Answer: Connecticut
