WCNYGS- Wayne County New York Genealogical Society program “In the Footsteps of Daniel Bissell: Honoring Service to the Nation and New York State from the Revolution to Desert Storm”

Tuesday, September 26, 2023

The program details the development of the military awards system starting with the Badge of Military Merit (now known as the Purple Heart) created by George Washington during the last days of the Revolution.  Daniel Bissell, buried in Allen’s Hill Cemetery, Richmond, Ontario County NY, was one of the 3 soldiers honored by Washington in 1783.  The program will be especially interesting for family historians who have pictures of service members; and perhaps their actual medals; and want to know what they represent. Speaker: Preston Pierce, Ontario County
