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. Accessed May 17, 2016.
