Before the United Confederate Veterans there was the Associated Confederate Veterans, Tennessee Division which was established in the early 1880's. The local groups were called bivouacs and then changed to camps under the United Confederate Veterans. This badge predates the United Confederate Veterans but was used after the bivouacs joined the UCV. The hanger of the badge has "United Confederate Veterans 37 " on it and was added after the Jackson, Tennessee bivouac joined the United Confederate Veterans. The large ribbon has a celluloid in the middle of John Ingram. A pair of applied, crossed 3rd National flags are at the top of the red, white, and red ribbon. Written in gold under the celluloid is "John Ingram Bivouac, No. 5 - Jackson, Tenn.". On the back of the badge is a blue ribbon with crossed flags. The flags are the 3rd National flag and the United States flag. Impressed in the ribbon is "U.C.V. 37 - Jackson, Tenn.". The ribbon is approximately 9 inches by 2 1/2 inches. Gold fringe is attached to the bottom of the badge.
