Additional Details

Trumbull (1710-1785) was named governor by the Connecticut Assembly in 1769, serving until 1784; during the Revolution, he was the only colonial governor to support the revolutionaries, becoming one of the Continental Army's chief suppliers. Trumbull changed the spelling of his name from "Trumble" in 1765.
