Current GOAL

Ypsilanti is named after the Greek Patriot General Demetrius Ypsilanti. When the area was settled, they named it after him because he was admired by a lot of Americans for his struggle for freedom. He's known for standing up to the Turkish tyranny, much like how America was standing up to the British... he held the Citadel of Argos for three days with his 300 men compared to the 30,000 the Turks had.. then escaped one night when they ran out of supplies and never lost a single man.

This coin would like to travel to cities with unique names and histories. Please put that info in the log :-)
