110th NEW YORK VETERAN’S 19th ARMY CORPS BADGE

$165.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1000-1837

The 110th New York recruited in Oswego County, New York, Company F coming largely from the town of Hannibal. The regiment mustered into U.S. service on 25 August 1862. It was sent to Baltimore, but in November shipped out for New Orleans where it became part of the 19th Army Corps. It first saw action at Fort Bisland and Franklin, and then took part in the siege of Port Hudson where is lost 37 men killed, wounded or missing, including during the assault of June 14. In November 1863 it fought at Vermilion Bayou, after which it was transferred to Florida.

This badge is typical of the German silver badges sold to veterans by vendors at regimental and G.A.R. reunions, but is a higher-grade product with an enameled center section colored to indicate the veteran’s division. Half-circles decorate the edge in imitation of a scalloped border. The company and regimental designation of the owner is stamped on the arms of the cross, and the center was cut-out and backed with a separate piece of metal soldered in place to enable it to be filled with white enamel. The badge was officially adopted by the corps 11 November 1864 and was described as a, “fan-leaved cross with an octagonal center,” which is sometimes mistaken by collectors as a 5th Corps Maltese cross. One unusual aspect of badges of the 19th Army Corps is that the color scheme differs from most: white is the designated color for the Third Division, in which the 110th served from January 1863 to February 1864, when it transferred to the District of Key West and the Tortugas.  [sr]
