This short film, winner of the Academy Award for Best Short, relays the story of the unselfish loyalty and devotion of Haym Salomon to General Washington and the fight for freedom in the American Revolution (1775-1783). Having immigrated to New York City from Poland, Salomon aided the Continental Army by brokering a number of large financial transactions that ensured the troops remained adequately clothed, fed and armed.
