International Expositions: Commemorative Awards

Exposition officials rewarded participants and exhibit winners with elaborately engraved commemorative certificates, diplomas, or award medals. These dramatically portrayed the historical importance of such events as the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804 to 1806, and the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914.
