The Association Test was a declaration of independence by the New Hampshire people, and proceeded the national Declaration by several months. It was a bold move to resist the authority of King George. If the cause had not been won, these men quite possibly would have been put to a cruel death as traitors.

This declaration, by the order of the General Congress, was sent on April 12, 1776, to the inhabitants of New Hampshire:


"We the subscribers do hereby solemnly engage, and promise, that we will, to the utmost of our power, at the risque of our lives and fortunes, with arms, oppose the hostile proceedings of the British fleets and armies against the United American Colonies."

This was signed by 8199 persons in the state; 773 refused to sign. Not all who did not sign were against the cause; some were Quakers and their religion prevented them from doing so; and some were not brave enough.

     Some of the names from Carroll County that answered the call were: Enoch POOR of Exeter, Benjamin TITCOMB of Wolfeborough, Elkanah DANFORTH of Tamworth, David COPP of Wakefield, James OSGOOD of Conway, Joseph BADGER of Wolfeborough, Nathanial AMBROSE of Moultonborough, Stephen MASON of Tamworth, Joseph SENTER of Moultonborough, Isaac WYMAN of Keene, Joseph LEAVITT of Wakefield, John FULLERTON of Wolfeborough, Pearson HUNTRISS of Conway, John GARLIN of Moultonborough, Elisha WINSLOW of Sandwich, Moses PAIGE of Sandwich, Bradstreet TAYLOR of Wakefield, James MASON of Moultonborough, Enoch THOMAS of Wolfeborough, James FLAGG of Sandwich, Joseph AMES of Tamworth, John ROW of Moultonborough, James CLARK of Wakefield, Rueben LIBBEY of Wolfeborough, Carr LEAVITT of Effingham, and Josiah BEAN of Sandwich.
