A cream colored silk ribbon with a prominent red Third Corps diamond and blank printed text reading, “99th Reg’t Pa. V. Vols. Survivor’s Association… 33rd… National Encampment Philadelphia September 4-9 1899.” The ribbon has a raw edge at top with no sign of being mounted. The bottom is a simple chevron V or forked tail.

This ribbon was made for the regimental association for attendance at the G.A.R. national encampment of 1899, held in Philadelphia.

The 99th spent most its service in the 3rd Corps until the dissolution of the corps in March 1864, when it was transferred into the 3rd Division of the 2nd Army Corps. It served from August 1861 to July 1865, and lost 9 officers and 113 enlisted men killed or mortally wounded at engagements such as Second Bull Run, Chantilly, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, etc. At Gettysburg it lost 110 men out of 339 engaged. It’s color bearer won the Medal of Honor in the fighting. It has two monuments at Gettysburg: one on Hancock Avenue and the other at its position at Devil’s Den. The use of “Pa. V. Vols” on the ribbon refers to its status as regiment of “Veteran Volunteers” after enough its men had reenlisted in to keep the regiment in service.

A ribbon from a fighting regiment in very good condition.  [sr]
