$200.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

In both the north and south there were a number of veterans’ organizations, and United Confederate Veterans organization worked similarly to the GAR.  Both were civic organizations that reflected and commemorated their war efforts and veterans. The ribbon here is a UCV ribbon for the Washington Artillery of New Orleans.

The Washington Artillery was assembled in 1838 and fought in the Mexican War.  The company would later be re-organized in 1852 and mustered into Confederate service in 1861.  They were engaged at 1st Manassas and others from Seven Pines to Gettysburg.  Later, the unit participated in actions from Chickamauga to Nashville with the Army of Tennessee.

The ribbon is in very good condition and made of silk.  Some signs of fraying along the edges.  It reads “WASHINGTON/ ARTILLERY/ VETERAN WASHINGTONARTILLERY/ UNITED CONFEDERATE/ VETERANS/ CAMP NO. 15/ NEW ORLEANS.” The ribbon measures 8 ½” in length and 2 5/8” in diameter.

This would make a nice addition to a collection of veterans’ memorabilia. [mk] [ph:L]
