George Rogers Clark National Historical Park
Dating back to 1779, a young 25-year old general named George Rogers Clark decided to form a group of frontiersmen to overthrow the British who held Fort Sackville along with a Appalachian frontier territory the size of the original 13 colonies. The British controlled the region beyond the colonies after the French and Indian war, and used the proclamation of 1763 as justification to send Indian war parties out to battle with settlers in the area. Clark, not wanting to stand-by idly, won approval from the governor to lead a major offensive against the British. After almost a year of planning, skirmishes, and ruthless warfare, the Americans took the fort in a public display of kicking the British out of the area.
Transferred to the National Park Service in 1966, today the site holds the Clark Memorial and is an important marker in America’s westward expansion. Thanks to the bold efforts of George Rogers Clark, America was able to gain the control of the area that eventually became Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin in the 1783 Treaty of Paris.
Designed by Frank Morris and engraved by Michael Gaudioso, the coin captures the frontiersman trudging through the floodplain to battle. The scene is forceful, lively, and true to the challenges early Americans whose efforts led to the formation of the frontier, the west, and America as we know it today.
