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.
