“Medal awarded to Major Stewart. This represents the medal the size of the original. On the back side is a fortress on an eminence. In the foreground an officer is cheering on his men, who are following him over abatis with charged bayonets, the enemy flying. Troops in single file are ascending to the fort on one side; others are advancing from the shore; ships are in sight. The inscription is, ‘Stony Point Oppugnatum XV. Jul. MDCCLXXIX;’ ‘Stony Point attacked 15th of July, 1779.’"—Lossing, 1851
