Wolcott at Litchfield CT – Statue of King George III

 

As I delved into the captivating tale of General Oliver Wolcott’s role in repurposing the remnants of King George III’s toppled statue, I found myself engrossed in the rich  Revolutionary history. I have linked the most recent narrative that fascinated me and I felt that I had personal connection and front row seat into the story: the revelation that Alfred Gibbs’s mother had witnessed these historic events firsthand.

Learning that Alfred’s mother stood witness at the Connecticut house, where General Wolcott orchestrated the casting of bullets from the fallen statue’s lead, added a deeply personal dimension to the tale. It not only had broader sweep of history but also the intimate experiences of individuals caught up in the tumultuous time of the revolution.

I couldn’t help but feel a sense of connection to the past and a renewed appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who came before us.
