Kosciuszko Memorabilia

The Museum has several mementos of Kosciuszko. Most interesting is a landscape drawn in pencil, most likely during his stay in the U.S. There are several objects that relate to the Kosciuszko Insurrection in Poland, including printed instructions for the Regulatory Commission and conferment of office of lieutenant for Jan Brach 4 IV 1794, signed by Kosciuszko. Other objects connected with the “hero of two continents” are, chiefly, pictures, graphics, sculptures, and medals of his likeness.
