NEW YORK AT GETTYSBURG MEDAL, 50TH REUNION 1913

$175.00

Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a Civil War Veteran’s Medal from the Battle of Gettysburg. Overall, it measures approximately 3” x 1 3/4”. The top section of the medal has “1863 – 1913 / New York – Gettysburg”. The bottom has the profile busts of “Meade” and “Lee” surrounded by military motifs. The reverse of the medal has the famous maker in tiny letters “WHITEHEAD & HOAG CO”.

The 1913 Gettysburg reunion was a battlefield encampment of Civil War veterans for the 50th anniversary. The 50th Reunion of the Battle of Gettysburg was held June 29–July 4 with the gathering of 53,407 veterans (8,750 Confederate). It was the largest ever Civil War veteran reunion, and never in the world's history had so many men in advanced age assembled under field conditions.

This medal is a real beauty, and no doubt was worn by one of these proud veterans. In my book “Battle of Gettysburg – The Relics, Artifacts & Souvenirs”, I go into more detail about the reunion. It comes in the glass-top display case pictured.
