The American settlement of what is now the western United States has long been romanticized in books, film, and television. Some of the famous stories that we associate with this period are based on fact while others are purely fictional. In this talk, we will explore some of these stories and discuss the usage and variety of tokens and medals in the western United States from the middle of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. Speaker: Michael Wehner.
