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 on the hoist and light staining of red dye. Some very minor mothing (one hole about 1” long near the hoist). Would look much better if cleaned. This is one of a group that came from a military museum.

The XVIII Corps was created on December 24, 1862. It was initially composed of five divisions stationed in North Carolina, making it one of the largest in the Union Army (though two were detached to join the X Corps in early 1863), and placed under the command of General John G. Foster. By August 1863, most of the corps' original units were either disbanded or transferred elsewhere, but Brig. Gen. George W. Getty's division (formerly of IX Corps) and the bulk of the recently discontinued VII Corps from Virginia were redesignated the XVIII Corps. [LD]
