Presented is a silver Federal 5th Army Corps Maltese Cross badge modified to honor an unidentified drummer boy. A small pin bar holds the Maltese Cross suspension badge that has a miniature silver drum and a pair of tiny drumsticks attached. On the face of the pin bar are small, engraved initials “J E”, likely the soldier for which this badge was original designed. Each of the four triangle segments of the badge appear to have been cleaned or scraped to allow other inscriptions placed on the badge. Top segment of the Maltese Cross bears a weak, engraved inscription, “Wm. Baker” while the left and right segments are engraved with “Co” and “Regt” respectively. A miniature drum rests at the center of the badge with the sticks soldered to the bottom segment. Entire badge has edge engraving along the borders. Pin back is tight and strong. This modified and partially ID’d silver pin back 5th Corps badge is a memento of the service given by a Civil War drummer boy,
