Non-excavated, George Washington bust style pewter “dog tag” for John Bockhardt [Burkart, Burkardt]. He was 40 years old when he enlisted on November 5, 1861 in New York City. He joined Company G, 52nd New York Infantry. Bockhardt was present with the regiment up to the Battle of Chancellorsville where he suffered a gun shot wound to the right hand and lost his right thumb. He spent months in various hospitals and was transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps on October 28, 1863.

Pewter tag shows wear around rim and on Washington’s bust but is in overall good condition. Stamped “JOHN BURKART / CO. G. / 52TH N.Y. / VOLS. / N.Y. CITY”. He was from Carlsruhe, in the German state of Baden. He must have had a heavy German accent as his name and age show up many different ways in the records.

Comes with complete set of military and pension records.  [jet]
