Castle Clinton was originally built to protect New York City from British aggression in the lead up to the War of 1812. During a portion of the latter half of the 19th century, Castle Clinton was used as the Emigrant Landing Depot, an immigration center predating Ellis Island!
This Lapel Pin depicts the castle in muted yellows, to mirror its sandstone construction and outlined in shining gold. A blue sky background and green foreground occupy the rest of the scene. This lapel pin will catch people's attention!
If you can trace your ancestry back to New York City from 1855 to 1890, your fore family may have come through Castle Clinton. As a nation of immigrants, what better way to celebrate our heritage?
