Local historian John Baxter presents thought-provoking research regarding Richard Stockton and his portrayal in John Trumbull’s Declaration of Independence.  Did Trumbull interject questions of Stockton’s loyalty or personal politics into his iconic work?  The talk explores interwoven stories of Stocktons and Trumbulls in search of answers.
