See Buffalo News article at:

Sullivan makes me ill ...... his last line of the article is
"The mayor said he hopes the medal can be temporarily displayed in the Barker Museum."
Sure Mr Mayor, are you personally going to show it off?
Because you did away with the curators position that is likely the only way the public will have the opportunity to see it.

Hey they don't tell you in the Buffalo news about the Cushing brothers being some of the worst and earlist "drunks "of Fredonia. It was in our own newspaper.He must have been drunk during the battle not listening to his superiors orders to retreat.And being shot three times must have been feelig no pain.They were disgusting brothers.
