Measures 18 ½” x 25”, circa 1890-1900. The corps badge design is two-sided, sewn on with two rows of zig-zag stitching. There is also an inner accent stitching. Overall condition is fine, with some soiling and water staining causing some red dye stain; not much mothing. Would look better if cleaned. This is one of a group that came from a military museum.

On December 3, 1864, the two corps of the Army of the James were reorganized. Its white units went to the XXIV Corps, while the black units became the XXV Corps, under the command of Major General Godfrey Weitzel. The new XXV Corps served with distinction during the waning days of the Petersburg Campaign. Its main noteworthy action was being the first command to occupy Richmond on April 3, 1865. In May the corps was sent to Texas to serve as the "Army of Occupation" against Napoleon III's French presence in Mexico. The XXV Corps was disbanded in January 1866. [LD]
