Along with the Southern Cross medal--two piece w/chain link (missing rear pin)--are included documentation from the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and two post-war  McCoy images. UDC certification letter states that McCoy was awarded this medal May 7, 1916, by the Tom Green Chapter, [ Southern Cross of Honor Recipient book # 11, page 402.

The medal itself was "dug" in North Texas in 1997, but shows little wear, with lettering--McCoy's name on upper link, and Maltese cross below--quite clear.

Evan Boyd McCoy was born in Mississippi on July 12, 1843, and died in Abilene, Texas, May 7, 1919. He enlisted in the 35th Mississippi on March 6, 1862, and served to the end of the war. His regiment was engaged at the Battle of Corinth and the Siege of Vicksburg and several other engagements.

Superb Confederate collectible. Southern Crosses of honor are scarce, especially those in VG condition as this one is. Accompanied by folder of online reference material. [jp][ph:L]
