A scarce delegate badge for Confederate veterans. In both the north and south there were a number of veterans’ organizations that have been overshadowed by the larger G.A.R. and U.C.V. These smaller organizations were locally or regionally based, or based on wartime organizations. Several predate the larger national groups, such as the Association of the Army of Northern Virginia (1870) or the Association of the Army of Tennessee (1877.) In 1888 several independent groups coalesced into the “Grand Camp Confederate Veterans of Virginia,” a year before the formal organization of the U.C.V.

This ribbon with celluloid advertising button at top is in very condition with just a small pin hole at top from the button’s pin and has good color. The lettering on the white silk ribbon is in red and the central motif is a Confederate battle flag in full color. The ribbon was made for a delegate to the 1913 meeting in Roanoke, and the advertising button at top appropriately touts the local “Chrystal Springs” as the “Third Best Water Supply in World.” We suppose that venues at the first and second best water supplies were already booked for conventions.

This would make a nice addition to a collection of veterans’ memorabilia, which is a large, colorful, and important collecting field, that reflects significant cultural and political movements of the period.  [sr]
