(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage A. A. Arnold, C. T, Art-Colortone postcard from the 1940s. It shows a view of the George Rogers Clark Memorial in Vincennes, IN. "The Finest National Memorial Outside of D. C."
"THE GEORGE ROGERS CLARK MEMORIAL in Vincennes commemorates the winning of the old Northwest by Col. Clark and his frontiersmen in the war of the American Revolution. Clark and his little heroic army composed of about 170 men captured old Ft. Sackville here and caused the British to surrender on the morning of February 25, 1779, more than two and a half years prior to the surrender of Cornwallis to George Washington at Yorktown. The memorial was erected by the federal government and with the land surrounding involves an expenditure of over $2,500,000. Clark's achievement opened the way west to the Pacific.", reads the description printed on the back.
The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted corner tips.
