What did Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee and George Herman "Babe" Ruth all have in common?
Yes, they were all very important figures in American history. From Presidents to a famous Baseball Player, their legends continue to live on.
But, the real answer here is that they were all protected with insurance from The Hartford.
- 1859: General Robert E. Lee applied to The Hartford for $5,800 of insurance on his home in Arlington, Virginia.
- 1861: The Hartford issued Abraham Lincoln a policy for $3,200 of insurance to cover his home in Springfield, Illinois for a consideration of Twenty-four dollars.
- 1920: The Hartford issued Babe Ruth's first insurance policy from the American Baseball League of New York City against loss of time and any casualties.
We have been protecting the financial future of Americans for 202 years – This means you can trust The Hartford... just as so many people have since 1810.
