Battle of Lake Erie, War of 1812, Silver Medal Awarded to Godfrey Bowman
This silver medal was known to be in my family up to around 1900. My grandfather had a similar photo of it but I have never been able to locate the actual medal. Was once in possession of Godfrey's son Charles O. Bowman of Corry, Pa.
