Niagara Gazette —

The burning of Lewiston remains as one of the only times native tribesmen assisted white civilians in crisis in American history.

To order the commemorative coin or for more information about it, call the Historical Association at 754-4214 or visit its headquarters at 469 Plain St. Interested individuals may also send a check payable to the "Historical Association of Lewiston" to the address, but should include an additional $4 for postage costs.

"We wanted to create a valued and lasting keepsake that would enable people to own and collect something that was related to the monument," Simonson said. "We had great success with the Battle of Queenston Heights coin and are confident demand will be just as high for the Tuscarora Heroes coin."
