Winnie Davis, the Daughter of the Confederacy, Rossette

Offered is a beautiful Winnie Davis rosette.  The center has a likeness of Winnie Davis.  This has beautiful color.  The center pin is surrounded by a red ring and a brass attachment.  A red and white ribbon around the brass completes the rosettes.  This rosette is approximately 3 inches wide.

Varina Anne “Winnie” Davis was born into a war-torn South in June of 1864, the youngest daughter of Confederate president Jefferson Davis and his second wife, Varina Howell Davis. Born only a month after the death of beloved Confederate hero general J.E.B. Stuart during a string of Confederate victories, Winnie’s birth was hailed as a blessing by war-weary Southerners. They felt her arrival was a good omen signifying future victory. But after the Confederacy’s ultimate defeat in the Civil War, Winnie would spend her early life as a genteel refugee and an expatriate abroad.    After returning to the South from German boarding school, Winnie was christened the “Daughter of the Confederacy” in 1886. This role was bestowed upon her by a Southern culture trying to sublimate its war losses. Particularly idolized by Confederate veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Winnie became an icon of the Lost Cause, eclipsing even her father Jefferson in popularity.

Unveiling of Gilmor Monument 1887 Baltimore, Maryland Ribbon

A very hard to find ribbon worn by Confederate veterans at the Unveiling of the Gilmor Monument at Loudon Park, Baltimore, Maryland.  The ribbon has the likeness of the Gilmore monument on it.  Written on the ribbon in red ink is "Confederate Memorial Day - Unveiling GILMOR MONUMENT - Loudon Park, Monday, June 6, 1887, 3:30 P.M. - Ford's Grand Opera House, 8 P.M.".  The ribbon is approximately 6 5/8 inches by 2 3/8 inches.  There are two stains on the ribbon.  One is at the top of the ribbon and the second is on the bottom of the ribbon.

Harry Gilmor grave site at Loudon Park Cemeteries "Confederate Hill". Gilmor is buried along with 700-800 former Rebels. Many of the dead were the wounded who died in Baltimore hospitals. In the decades following the war Veterans wishing to be buried with fallen comrades where buried on "Confederate Hill" into the 1900's.

Harry Gilmor was born January 24, 1838 at "Glen Ellen", the family estate in Baltimore County, Maryland. After homesteading in Wisconsin and Nebraska, he returned to Maryland in time to join the newly formed Baltimore County Horse Guards as a corporal.

After the efforts of the citizens of Baltimore to prevent the movement of Federal troops through the city, the Horse Guards received orders to burn several bridges north of the city to prevent further troop movements toward Washington City.

Following the occupation of Baltimore by Federal troops under Brigadier General Benjamin "Beast" Butler, Gilmor was one of many to be arrested and imprisoned in Fort McHenry. After his release, he traveled South and joined the command of Colonel Turner Ashby on August 31, 1861.

In March 1862, he was commissioned Captain of Company F, Twelfth Virginia Cavalry. Captain Gilmor served throughout the Valley Campaign. At times, he was on special assignment to General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.

He was arrested during the Sharpsburg Campaign, while in the Baltimore area visiting family. He spent five months in prison.

He participated in the Battle of Brandy Station and was sighted in the after action reports of General Fitzhugh Lee and General J.E.B. Stuart for his conduct in this engagement.

On May 27, 1863, he was promoted to the rank of Major and asked to raise an independent battalion of cavalry. Before he could complete this assignment, the Gettysburg campaign interceded. During the battle, Major Gilmor was assigned command of the First and Second Maryland Cavalry, under General George Steuart's infantry brigade. Major Gilmor was the Provost Marshal of the town of Gettysburg while it was occupied.

Gilmor had organized six companies of partisan rangers by September of 1863. His command's area of operation was the Shenandoah Valley and parts of "West" Virginia. General J.E.B. Stuart ordered Gilmor to attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in February of 1864.

After the defeat of Major General Lew Wallace at Monocacy on July 9, 1864, Gilmor's command acted as the spearhead for the raid around Baltimore in 1864 with General Bradley T. Johnson's infantry command.

While assigned to scout duty under General Jubal Early, Colonel Gilmor single-handedly captured a company of Federal infantry. Gilmor and Holmes Conrad, a man under his command, later captured more than 50 troopers from the First New Jersey Cavalry.

Colonel Gilmor was ordered by General Early to take his command to Hardy County, West Virginia. He was to combine with other partisans in the area and attack the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Colonel Gilmor was finally captured in Hardy County, on February 4, 1865. He remained a prisoner at Fort Warren until July 24, 1865.

For several years after the war, Harry Gilmor lived in New Orleans, where he married Miss Mentoria Strong. Upon his return to Maryland, he was elected colonel of cavalry in the Maryland National Guard. He also served as Baltimore City Police Commissioner from 1874 to 1879. He was a member of the Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in Maryland and it's Vice-President in 1882.

Harry Gilmor died in Baltimore on March 4, 1883 at the age of forty-five. He was interred on "Confederate Hill" in Loudon Park Cemetery. To this day, people gather at his graveside on the anniversary of his birth to honor his life long service to his country.

Richmond Light Infantry Blues - 46th Virginia Infantry Membership Enameled Pin

Offered is a nice example of the Richmond Light Infantry membership enameled pin.  The badge has a Richmond Light Infantry Blues soldier holding a rifle in the middle of the pin.  An oval of blue enamel circles the soldier with “Richmond Light Infantry Blues – 1789” written on it.  The pin is approximately ½ inches wide and ¾ inches tall. 

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE
RICHMOND LIGHT INFANTRY BLUES
Before the American Revolution, the city of Richmond raised a group of soldiers for protection, which was called into service in the Continental Army under the command of General George Washington . After the war ended, the Richmond Light Infantry Company returned to Richmond, marching in public parade shortly after their return. This display wasn’t met with great enthusiasm from the people, largely due to the Company wearing a traditional red uniform which bore a resemblance to the uniforms worn by the British Army at the time. Following this, the Company elected to change the color of their uniform to blue, and as such, the Richmond Light Infantry Blues was formed in 1789.

The Blues entered active service again for the War of 1812 in order to repel British forces as they pushed into Virginia, not seeing combat as the war ended before the British forces reached Richmond. Several decades later they were called to service again during the American Civil War as part of the 46th Virginia Infantry. The Blues participated as part of the Army of Occupation in Cuba during the Spanish American War, as well as serving during the Mexican Border Campaign in 1900. The Blues were reorganized for service in the 1st World War as part of the 104th Ammunition Train, seeing combat in France at the battles of Alsace and the Meuse and the Argonne. Members of the Blues then went on to serve in World War 2, as well as the Global War on Terror.

Due to a reorganization of the Virginia Army National Guard, the Blues were stood down in the year 1968, remaining dormant until December of 2016, where they were reestablished.
