Happy Alaska Day!

One of our most loyal customers reached out to us to design a backgammon board celebrating the state of Alaska. Robert Stoller is a cofounder of the Anchorage Backgammon Club. A proud resident and historian, he tells us about Alaska Day:

By way of historical background, “Alaska Day” commemorates the formal transfer of possession of the then Territory of Alaska from Captain Pestchouroff, the representative of the Emperor of Russia, to United States General Louvell Rousseau at Fort Sitka, Alaska on Friday October 18, 1867.
