Jonathan Trumbull
Where You Are Standing
From 1768 to 1784
Jonathan Trumbull guides the people of Connecticut
to independence as the colony's Royal Governor.
Governor Trumbull is the only colonial governor
to stand with the patriots during
the American Revolution.
He organizes the energy and ingenuity of her citizens
to make the weapons, the food and clothing for
George Washington's Continental Army,
thus earning Connecticut the honored title of
"The Provisioning State" after the colonies
gain their independence, and becoming
"Brother Jonathan" to President Washington.
