This dug silver shield shaped badge was recovered at Winchester Virginia. It meas. approx. 1.25 inches wide. Badge is mostly clean with some light scattered tarnish on both sides. No pin remains on the back but the footprint of the “T” bar pin and latch remain.

Along the edge of the face is a scalloped line. At center is “M. HARRINGTON” in block letters arranged in a slight arch. Below the name in larger lettering is “Co. H.” Followed by “122nd REGT. N.Y.S.V.” which arcs in the opposite direction from the name almost forming a circle around the company designation. At bottom in script is “GEDDES, / ONONDAGA COUNTY.” The inscription is highlighted by chased lines and scrolls.

Disk belonged to Morris Harrington of Company H, 122nd New York. Harrington enlisted as a Private at age 23 on August 28, 1862 at Syracuse, New York. He was promoted to Corporal on February 1, 1863. He was wounded slightly in the forehead at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863 and sent to a hospital in York, Pennsylvania where he remained until January of 1864. Of his wound a newspaper reported he “…was wounded in the forehead. It was a loud call for Morris, but it did not cool his courage. The wound is healing nicely, and he is able to be about.”

Harrington returned to duty and was killed in action at Winchester, Virginia on September 19, 1864 which is where this disk was recovered.  [ad]
