Here is a badge worn at the 1937 SCV Jackson, Mississippi reunion. This great badge has a simple name hanger with two ribbons attached. The ribbons are approximately 23 1/2 inches long. On the white ribbon is "Missouri Division S.C.V. - Reunion - Jackson, Miss., June 9-12, 1937". There is no writing on the red ribbon.
This pinback is a screamer and very, very hard to find! The pinback is approximately 1 3/4 inches wide. In the middle of the pinback is a wonderful poem - "Out of its scabbard never hand - Waved sword from stain as free. - Nor purer sword led braver band, Nor braver bled for a brighter land. - Nor brighter land had a cause as grand. - Nor cause had a chief like Lee. - Father Ryan". Around the poem is written "Re-Union Sons of Veterans - Baton Rouge, La.. Aug. 5-6, '01".
When I first saw this I thought Union Sons of Veterans but when I read the poem I knew it was USCV. No Union pinback would glorify General Lee! The Sons were still trying to decide what to call themselves in 1901. This is an inredibly hard to find pinback! Don't miss it!!!!
These badges are getting hard to find. This is the badge for the national SCV reunion in 1932 held with the 1932 UCV reunion in Richmond, VA. This badge was made by Green Duck. This ribbon is in great shape! The ribbon is marked DELEGATE.
