6, when news of the British evacuation of Boston reached Congress, that body resolved that its thanks be presented to the commander-in-chief and the officers and soldiers under his command, for their wise and spirited conduct in the siege and acquisition of Boston; and that a medal of gold be struck in commemoration of this great event and presented to his Excellency. This medal was nearly 2 3/4 inches in diameter. On one side was a profile head of Washington, with the Latin legend, Georgio Washington, Svpremo Dvci Exercitvvm Asertori Libertatis Comitia Americana — The American Congress to George Washington, the Commander-in-chief of its Armies, the Assertor of Freedom.

The legend is, Hostibus Primo Fugatis — The enemy for the first time put to flight. T
