Congressional Gold Medals, 1776-2010
Matthew Eric Glassman
Senators and Representatives are frequently asked to support or sponsor proposals recognizing historic events and outstanding achievements by individuals or institutions. Among the various
forms of recognition that Congress bestows, the Congressional Gold Medal (CGM) is the most distinguished. Through this venerable tradition, the occasional commissioning of individually struck gold medals in its name, Congress has expressed public gratitude on behalf of the nation for distinguished contributions for more than two centuries. This report discusses the nature, history, and contemporary application of the process for awarding CGM, and includes a historical examination and chronological list of these awards. This is a print on demand report.
