Revolutionary War Financier - Haym Solomon



"David Cowen talked about Haym Salomon, a Jewish-American Revolutionary War financier. In 1976, the United States honored Haym Salomon with a stamp with an inscription on the reverse side said "Financial Hero." Businessman and broker Haym Salomon was responsible for raising most of the money needed to finance the American Revolution and later to save the new nation from collapse. Mr. Cowen also responded to questions from the audience."
