The Bucks of America, an all-Black company, seems to have operated in a military capacity in Boston during the American Revolution. No documentation definitively links them to any particular Revolutionary battle. This silver medallion commemorates the unit and includes an engraving of a buck, a pine tree, and thirteen stars.
