About George Rogers Clark National Historical Park Quarter Launch
The U.S. Mint will launch another "America the Beautiful" quarter featuring George Rogers Clark. A ceremony marking the coin's release will be held at the Riverfront Pavilion with a coin exchange immediately following. Clark’s bold capture of the fort is considered one of the greatest feats of the American Revolution. The event effectively limited British control of the region and was instrumental in the subsequent establishment of the Northwest Territory and American expansion west of the Appalachians. Clark and his men are featured on the quarter.
