Happy Birthday to Tadeusz Kościuszko. The Greatest Polish-American Hero!
February 04, 2020
Today, February 4th, we celebrate the 274th birthday of the most famous Polish figure in American history, Tadeusz Kościuszko (Thaddeus Kosciuszko).
He was born in the village of Mereczowszczyzna and was the youngest son of an officer in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Army. Kościuszko designed the defenses of the West Point garrison from 1778–1780 during the height of the Revolutionary War when George Washington considered West Point to be the most important military post in America. On his last trip to Philadelphia, Kosciuszko enlisted Thomas Jefferson as executor of a will directing that his military pay from the Revolution be used to buy the freedom of American slaves and pay for their education.
Do you want to learn more about the Revolutionary war hero? Become a member of the Kosciuszko Foundation and receive a free DVD "Kosciuszko: A Man Before His Time"*. There is no better time than right now to honor a champion of civil rights and pioneer of both countries.
* Limited quantity available. The offer ends at midnight on February 4th, 2020
Founded in 1925, the Kosciuszko Foundation promotes closer ties between Poland and the United States through educational, scientific and cultural exchanges. It awards up to $1 million annually in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists, professionals, and artists, and promotes Polish culture in America. The Foundation has awarded scholarships and provided a forum to Poles who have changed history.
