Gov. Jonathan Trumbull's War Office and Connecticut's 375th Anniversary 1635-2010



On September 11, 2010, as part of Connecticut's Official 375th Anniversary Commemoration, the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution presented, "From Puritan to Patriot, Connecticut's Military from its Puritan Foundation to the American Revolution," at the War Office in Lebanon, Connecticut. The historical timeline covering the years 1635-1783 was a great success, and the event was held again in 2016.




The Trumble/Trumbull family of Lebanon, Connecticut served in various military capacities during the years covered as mentioned in previous blog posts. Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, Connecticut's Patriot "Rebel Governor," rose to the rank of Colonel in his local Connecticut militia (12th Regiment of Connecticut Militia), and as Governor, served as Captain General and Commander-in-Chief of the Connecticut militia and Naval forces during the American Revolution.
