US Post Civil War GAR Membership Medal, A31085

Quantity: 
Price:  $95.00
 
Item #43326

Original era manufacture. A very clean example with lots of original finish left on the star and suspension bar, sound original ribbon displaying normal age and wear. Numbered on the edge, A31085.

In my opinion, this is the most representative medal for the Union Civil War Veteran. Official recognition by the US Government didn't occur until over 40 years had elapsed since the surrender of Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. By that time, many of these old soldiers had moved onto the last bivouac, never receiving the well-deserved recognition by the government they sacrificed to protect.

These great old GAR medals, represent that sacrifice, and bond of unity and comradeship those soldiers formed on the many battlefields of 1861-1865. The veterans wore them with well deserved pride, as they represent a visual testament to their loyal service in time of war.
