1872 GRANT CAMPAIGN RIBBON

$250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1202-157

This light blue silk 1872 campaign ribbon is in excellent condition. The gilt stamped brass eagle pin at top is in place and there are no tears or ragged edges. Grant is shown at top in a bust portrait surrounded by stars under the slogan “THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE” and with the date “1872.” Underneath. A short horizontal line sets off the lower portion of the ribbon with “NATIONAL GUARD.” over a U.S. flag flying in breeze with flag cords and a Liberty Cap on its staff. Underneath is the motto “WE FIGHT IT OUT ON THIS LINE,” a expression of resolve paraphrasing Grant’s message to Lincoln after Spotsylvania, “I propose to fight it out on this line if it takes all summer.”

This is a very strong example of a scarce political ribbon.  [sr] [ph:L]
