Rare Revolutionary Medal Going On Display At Ft. Ticonderoga

Jul 3, 2018

A rare medal honoring soldiers who fought in the American Revolution is going on display at Fort Ticonderoga in northern New York tomorrow – the Fourth of July. The original Society of the Cincinnati gold eagle medal is one of two surviving examples produced in Paris in 1783 for purchase by officers of the Continental Army. 

WAMC’s Jim Levulis spoke with the Fort’s curator, Matthew Keagle, about the medal – which is on loan from a private collection.
