Prior to 2001, September 11 was a day celebrated for the American victory at the Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814—a victory that led the British to realize that continuation of the war was futile. Kenneth Swab will discuss the Congressional medals awarded to the American commanders of the land and naval battles that took place on September 11, 1814, and other numismatic material related to those individuals.
