    'Live Free or Die' motto often invoked, with mixed results

    Long live "Live Free or Die." Written by Revolutionary War Gen. John Stark in 1809 and adopted as the state motto in 1945, the phrase won praise from then-candidate Donald Trump just before the 2016 presidential primary. "What a great slogan," Trump said in a Facebook video. "Congratulations, New Hampshire. Wonderful job." To Trump, the motto stood for everything from free enterprise and border security to "taking care of our vets." Based on this session's debate, some New Hampshire politicians would add protecting transgender individuals and crime victims, texting at stoplights and growing marijuana. "Live Free or Die" was invoked at least 10 times this year at the Statehouse, with mixed results

    Granite State Stories: UNH moves to Durham

    The New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts was established as a land-grant institution in 1866. It was located in Hanover until 1893, when prosperous Durham farmer Benjamin Thompson died and bequeathed his entire estate to the state of New Hampshire to establish an agricultural school. The college relocated to Thompson's farm. The bequest and subsequent move allowed the college to expand its course of study to include the liberal arts and widen its focus to educate all the youth of the Granite State, not only those pursuing agriculture. In 1923, its name changed to the University of New Hampshire. The largest university in the state, UNH continues to thrive. N.H. Historical
