"But how was it in Connecticut at that time? Jonathan Trumbull, of Lebanon, had been elected governor of Connecticut in 1769 by the free suffrages of the people, and was re-elected to the same office for fifteen years, to the close of the war; and there was no place in the charter given by Charles II, where the king of England could step in to stay those proceedings. Jonathan Trumbull was of the people and for the people, the right-hand counselor and helper of Washington through the whole revolutionary struggle."[1]
