Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a New Jersey GAR Reunion Ribbon. It is for the 25th New Jersey Infantry, Bridgeton, NJ, Dec. 13, 1913. It was organized as a nine-month regiment with five companies ("A", "C", "E", "H", & "K") from Passaic County in Northern New Jersey. Companies F, G and I were recruited from Cape May County, Company D from Cumberland County, and Company B from Atlantic County.

The regiment trained at Camp in Beverly, before being sent out to Washington, DC. There, it was attached to the 2nd brigade Casey's Division, Defenses of Washington, D. C until December 1862. Next it was attached to the 1st Brigade, 3rd Division, 9th Army Corps, Army of the Potomac, to February 1863 and then to the 3rd Brigade until April 1863. Finally, it was attached to the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Division, 7th Army Corps to June 1863.

The regiment fought in two engagements–the December 1862 Battle of Fredericksburg and the Siege of Suffolk, April 11 - May 4, 1863. Many of the veterans of the 25th New Jersey went on to serve in other regiments, most notably the 33rd New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, and the 38th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry.

This ribbon is in beautiful condition having the celluloid flag and “Bridgeton, N.J.”. It was made by the leading manufacturer of the time of Civil War medals and reunion items, “Whitehead & Hoag Co., Newark NJ”. New Jersey items are always difficult to find.
