    Samuel Huntington (1731-1796) was a lawyer from Connecticut who became active with the Sons of Liberty in 1774. Elected to Connecticut's Upper House of Assembly in 1776, he served on the Council of Safety, and was selected a delegate to the Continental Congress that year, and was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Huntington served two terms as President of the Congress during the important adoption of the Articles of Confederation. He was called home in 1784 when he was elected Lieutenant Governor of Connecticut. Two year later, in 1786, he was elected governor. Because of his immense popularity in the office, he was re-elected every term until his death 1796.

    Condition: Mounted on card stock, paper is lightly toned, with a small bit of paper loss at top edge not affecting the signature or any text.
