New York troops fought in pretty much every phase of the battle and some 6,700 New Yorkers became casualties, including 82 officers and 912 enlisted men killed and another 306 officers and 3763 enlisted men wounded, with the remainder captured or missing. The New York state monument was dedicated July 2, 1893, the day titled “New York Day” at Gettysburg. This large light blue ribbon with gold lettering was specifically for New York veterans in attendance for the ceremonies. “VETERAN” appears at the top with the New York state seal beneath. Under that in a curve is “GETTYSBURG,” “JULY 1-2-3,” and “1893.”

The top pin-back bar is gilt stamped brass with a crossed rifle and saber over an upright cannon barrel on a sunburst of rays, with “1863” at left and “1893” at right.  “NEW YORK DAY” appears in an arc overhead. The bottom of the ribbon is left unfinished. The ribbon is in very good condition with just minor tarnish to some of the gilt lettering.  [sr]
