Not sure if I posted these before, if I did please forgive the redundancy. This is my collection of Civil War Re-Union Ribbons for the 137th New York State Infantry Regiment & a Lincoln Memorial Souvenir Badge. The Regiment was organized at Binghampton, N.Y. in September 1862 and was mustered out in June 1865. It was involved in a number of major battles including Chancellorsville & Gettysburg. There is a monument to the Regiment at Gettysburg. The badges represent the 1896, 1909 & 1911 re-unions. The Lincoln badge is dated 1914. Note the missing arm & leg of the veterans in the first badge.
