Gov. Hugh L. Carey has proclaimed Jan. 6 as the 236th anniversary of the birth of Haym Salomon. The anniversary proclamation stated: “As we celebrate the Bicentennial of our nation’s founding, it is appropriate that we pay particular homage to those courageous individuals who played prominent roles in the American Revolution.” Salomon, who was born in Poland, came to these shores in 1772 and with the outbreak of the American Revolution became an ardent supporter of the Colonial cause, the proclamation noted.
