MCCC President Tom Betsock will speak the numismatic connection of General Richard Montgomery. Montgomery led American revolutionaries in invading Canada and capturing Montreal in November 1775, but he was killed in the unsuccessful assault on Quebec on December 31, 1775. Upon being informed of his death George Washington wrote, “America has sustained a heavy loss.”
