The face of this white metal disc has a crude raised bust of General George B. McClellan surrounded by “McCLELLAN” and “LIBERTY.”

Reverse is decorated with stars around the edge and stamped “W. KISSINGER CO. F, 110 REG. O. V. I. YORK, PA.”

Disc has some light surface dirt and oxidation but is otherwise good and readable.

William Kissinger was born in 1831. He enlisted as a private in Company F, 110th Ohio Infantry on September 4, 1862. Unfortunately there is no further record of him and efforts to research him have come up empty.

The 110th Ohio was organized on October 3, 1862 and served with the 8th Corps until July of 1863 when it joined the Army of the Potomac serving in the 3rd and 6th Corps. The regiment was engaged at Winchester, Mine Run, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Monocacy, Opequan, Fisher’s Hill, Cedar Creek and Sailor’s Creek.

During its service the regiment lost 12 officer and 218 men killed, died of wounds and disease.    [ad] [ph:L]
