This is a very fine, non-dug, large, two-piece suspension medallion that honors the United Confederate Veterans at their 22nd Reunion at Macon, Georgia on May 7-9, 1912. The brass, two piece medallion consists of a colorful top device that measures 44mm x 30mm in the shape of a large shield that partially covers a folded Confederate St. Andrews battle flag. Shield at its scalloped upper edge bears the embossed name "22nd UCV (intertwined) REUNION" over the embossed outline of a tall monument and a large government building. Above the building flies a pennant with an inscription on it that reads "WOMAN'S MONUMENT and CITY HALL" . Below the building are the letters "MACON / GA." The flag is shown painted with dark blue bars with eight small gold stars upon them, all on a red background. A tiny loop bears a small brass ring that suspends the actual brass medallion that measures a diameter of 37mm.
Medallion exhibits the raised relief image of Lee and Jackson in conference mounted on their horses. Upper outer edge of the medal features an oak leaf or laurel leaf wreath while the lower edge bears the words "LAST MEETING OF LEE AND JACKSON". Backside of the medallion has the maker's stamp of "The Whitehead & Hoag Co. / Newark, N.J." Brass has acquired a pleasing, smooth medium bronze patina overall. Face detail is crisp and sharp and the paint has only one tiny chip out. This finely detailed two-piece medallion, which honors the great Southern warriors "Robert E. Lee" and "Stonewall" Jackson, is a wonderful, original specimen that would add to any Southern collection of associated memorabilia.
