75th Gettysburg Gar Reunion 1938 Vet & Attendee Medal 50th Colored Regiment For Sale

75th Gettysburg Gar Reunion 1938 Vet & Attendee Medal 50th Colored Regiment

Not sure on how to price these so will put them up for sale. These are scarce/rare. The medals were given out in 1938 at the Gettysburg encampment for vets and their attendees for what I understand was the last War encampments for the vets. They were in their 90's by this point and only about 1800 vets inattendance. Of these, about 1375 were union troops with about 25 Gettysburg vets. Larkin Woodruff, who's is engraved on the Vet medal and is 1399 served in the 50th colored US Regiment and they were in the Western theater. He is the only Larkin Woodruff I could find in the Park Service's record for troops. He may have been the only colored soldier inattendance. HisAttendant, Clarence Woodruff was likely a relative. There was a Clarence Woodruff that was in the 52nd Colored Regiment and this could have been him or a son. Someone will need to do some further research.
I obtained these in a military collection I bought. There were in the personal collection of Major General Edward Mann Lewis, West Point Graduate class of 1886. All the items I obtained were personal to the general, thus these must have had some connection to him, although what it is is not clear to me. Perhaps Woodruff served under him somewhere.
I am a old school wholesaler dealer and scour GA and New England for the best to buy for my customers. I am also the founder of WorthPoint and would encourage all to visit it if you want to research antique prices.I focus on happy repeat customers and love what I do and try to ensure all customers are happy. I do not stay glued to my computer and have a real job so please do not expect instantaneous answers. Consider your source when buying. I have sold over 11,000 items on and have 99.9% positive response.

I charge GA sales tax to GA residents. I specialize in paper, photos , coins and militaria. I sell about anything except reproductions. If it is not old, I say so. If there is a defect, I also say so. If you know more than me about something, that is OK, as I do not mind learning or being told that I am wrong and strive for accuracy. You can always learn more in this business. If I make a mistake, and we all do, I will take responsibility for it and you can return the item.

If buying internationally, email me for final postage if you are the winner. 's quoted postage tends to be too high for a 1st class envelope. Also I make a full decloration of sales value, thus please do not ask or expect otherwise.

I have done a little more research on Larkin Woodruff due to so manyinquirieson this medal. He was born around 1848 in LA. He served in the 50th colored infantry from May 1865- March 1866. He is listed as a CW veteran with the Veterans Department in the 50th Colored Regiment. His race is noted as mulatto and colored on various government documents. He is buried in the MS. Apparently he died just prior to this reunion, on June 10, and it is likely he intended on going to the reunion and never made it. Clarence, the name of his attendent badge, signed the application for his headston with the VA in 1938. He may, or may not, have been the vet from the 52 colored regiment.
