Christopher McDowell (2022)
This presentation will address Americas first medals: The Kittanning Destroyed and Treaty of Easton medals. The Kittanning medal was the first military medal, 25 years before the Purple Heart, and the Treaty of Easton medal was the first Peace meal struck in America. One for war and the other for peace, both made by Quakers a year apart. Presented as part of the Newman Portal Symposium, April 8-10, 2022. Speaker(s): Christopher McDowell.
