Did you ever notice the artwork in the Babcock Library that is on the wall next to the door?

It is a reproduction of John Trumbull’s:
The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker’s Hill, June 17, 1775

“Thomas Knowlton is arguably Ashford’s most widely recognized war hero. His service during the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution are memorialized in a statue on the grounds of the State Capitol and in the dedication of Knowlton Memorial Hall in Ashford” (Connecticut History.org).

To learn more about Ashford’s war hero Lieutenant Colonel Knowlton please join us at Babcock Library for an informative presentation and discussion about Lieutenant Colonel Knowlton and Captain Nathan Hale researched and presented by Drew A. G. Driscoll, fellow resident of Ashford.
