Samuel Bronfman, a son of a refugee from czarist Russia who fled to Canada in 1889. In 1924 Samuel Bronfman formed Distillers Corp., Canada and in 1928 during the American prohibition period, he acquired the Joseph E. Seagram & Sons of Canada and took over the Seagram name. Since arriving in Canada from Russia the family made a fortune outrunning federal tax collectors and selling whiskey to American mobsters. The company was well prepared for the end of Prohibition in 1933 with an ample stock of aged whiskeys ready to sell to the newly opened American market and it prospered accordingly. 

Samuel Brofman died July 10, 1971, less than six month after the family celebration depicted by this medal. He was born a Canadian citizen on March 4, 1891, in Brandon, Manitoba.

It was on the branch of the South Platte River, three miles west of what is today Cheyenne that Fort D. A. Russell was established in 1867. Originally named in honor of Civil War Brigadier General David A. Russell, F. E. Warren Air Force Base is the oldest continuously active military installation within the Air Force. It's home to the 90th Space Wing and Headquarters, 20th Air Force, of Air Force Space Command.


When President Lincoln and Congress set plans for the transcontinental railroad, they recognized the need for a military installation to protect Union Pacific workers from hostile Indians. On July 4, 1867, the railroad established its mountain region headquarters at Crow Creek Crossing, later known as Cheyenne. A few weeks later, the U.S. Cavalry moved from temporary headquarters in Cheyenne to a point three miles west and established Fort D. A. Russell. Thus, 1867 was the beginning of a city and a fort, and both have grown together over the years.  In 1876, troops from Fort Russell participated in the Great Sioux Indian Wars, the same in which Lt. Col. Custer's forces were defeated.
