Gov. Dannel Malloy has ordered all U.S. and state flags to be flown at half-staff Wednesday in honor of president Abraham Lincoln, who was shot and killed 150 years ago this week.
The mandate comes after a proclamation issued by President Barack Obama.
Flags should remain at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday, the anniversary of Lincoln's death and national Day of Remembrance for President Abraham Lincoln.
The president was shot at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. the night of April 14. He died at 7:22 a.m. on April 15.
