What are “stogies”?

Q. My friends and I were wondering about the origin of the term “stogies.” We have no idea what it means.
Thanks,
– George K.

A. The term stogie is actually named after Conestoga, Pennsylvania where one of the first cigar factories (in Pennsylvania) was built. I suppose you could call a brand like Parodi cigars “stogies” since they’re made in Scranton, Pennsylvania, but it’s now just a generic, slang term that refers to any cigar.
