Item Code: 2021-564

This is a department level badge for a representative to the annual encampment of the G.A.R. Department of Pennsylvania held at Gettysburg on June 9-10, 1909. The bronze upper bar reads “Gettysburg” in a scroll at top, with the date JUNE 1909 on a bar below, flanking the G.A.R. emblem of soldier and sailor shaking hands before the figure of Columbia with grateful woman and child bordered by the words “Grand Army of the Republic Veteran 1861-1866.”

A red, department level, ribbon holds the suspension bar reading “representative,” from which hangs a planchet with a portrait bust on the obverse of Department Commander Patrick DeLacy. DeLacy was a lieutenant in the 143rd Pennsylvania, served 1862-1865 and was awarded the Medal of Honor actions in the Wilderness Campaign. His portrait is bordered by 43rd ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT / DEPT. OF PA. G.A.R. on the obverse. The reverse reads “MEADE’s HEADQUARTERS” with a small star at bottom, and a central panel showing the Leister farmhouse behind a picket fence.

The condition is very good with just a few spots of verdigris on the lower reverse of the medallion. [sr] [ph:L]
