Our country stands on the eve of a grand anniversary, and DAR is preparing to celebrate in a big way! This pin, the eighth in a Limited 250th Anniversary series, commemorates the Legacy of Bernardo De Gálvez.
On May 8, 1782, Gálvez and his Spanish forces captured the British naval base at New Providence in the Bahamas. He was busy preparing for a grand campaign against Jamaica when peace negotiations ended the war. After the fighting, Gálvez helped draft the terms of treaty that ended the war, and he was cited by the American Congress for his aid during the conflict.
