Peace & Friendship: Indian Peace Medals from the Schermer Collection

In stock

In 2000, Betty and Lloyd Shermer presented a landmark gift of Indian peace medals to the National Portrait Gallery. These medals, produced in silver by the U.S. government for presentation to Indian chiefs and warriors, are a fascinating part of American history, delineating not only the country's relationships with Indian tribes, but also representing an important segment of the history of American portraiture.
