The name was changed into 1768 according to Charlotte de Mecklenburg-Strelitz, wife of Georges III of the United Kingdom. Its growth was slow until the medium of the Dix-neuvième century when it became a shipyard. The conference of 1864 was a step towards the establishment of the confederation.
The Bridge of the Confederation form a permanent bond between the island and the continent.
