1896. Item #6385
18 cm x 6 cm. This is out of an estate in Richmond, VA. Of the three Confederate reunions in 1896--Richmond, VA; Hico, TN; and Brownsville, TN--this is surely from the Richmond Reunion. It was at this UCV Reunion that the cornerstone was laid for the Jefferson Davis monument on Richmond's Monument Ave. The statue was toppled in 2020 and the monument was largely removed in 2021. The ribbon is worn with traying at the top and bottom as well as a tear above the date the extends from the left edge to the center. Generally soiled. Uncommon.
