Description

Reverse side celebrates The Charter Oak tree, which proved to be a good hiding place
On the night of October 31, 1687, Connecticut’s Charter was put to a test. A British representative for King James II, challenged Connecticut’s government structure and demanded its surrender. In the middle of the heated discussion, with the Charter on the table between the opposing parties, the candles were mysteriously snuffed out, darkening the room. When visibility was reestablished, the Connecticut Charter had vanished. Heroic Captain Joseph Wadsworth saved the Charter from the hands of the British and concealed it in the safest place he could find in a majestic white oak. This famous tree, The Charter Oak.
