This stamped brass acorn badge still retains much of its original gilt finish. The two wire fasteners on the reverse are still in place as well though bent down slightly inside the hollow back. The face has just minor scattered age spots and one small rubbed area. The 14th Army Corps officially adopted the acorn as its badge in April 1864, sometimes said as a reminder of hard times and short rations at Chattanooga when acorns seemed tempting. The badge was proudly worn throughout the Atlanta Campaign, the March to the Sea, and the Campaign of the Carolinas.  [sr]
