Summary
This collection includes one invitation from the George Rogers Clark Memorial Commission in Vincennes, Indiana from 1929 to commemorate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the surrender of Fort Sackville
Biographical or historical data
An intense interest in commemorating the great accomplishments of George Rogers Clark had developed among the citizens of Vincennes and the state of Indiana during the early 1920s as the 150th anniversary of the American Revolution neared. After various proposals had been considered, President Calvin Coolidge signed into law a resolution establishing the George Rogers Clark Sesquicentennial Commission on May 23, 1928. President Coolidge authorized the building of the George Rogers Clark Memorial in Vincennes, Indiana, on the site believed to be Fort Sackville on the Wabash River. President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the finished structure on June 14, 1936.Sources:Items in the collection."George Rogers Clark." National Park Service.
