In 1798, Roger Griswold attacked Matthew Lyon with his walking stick on the floor of the House of Representatives. Griswold, a Congressman from Connecticut, was outraged at the House’s failure to reprimand Lyon, a Vermont Representative, for spitting tobacco juice at him. When Griswold attacked with the cane, Lyon grabbed a pair of fire tongs and the two began to duel before being separated by other Members of the House. Could this 1798 silver dollar have been in the House of Representatives to witness this historic joust?
