Gar Medal 1860s Us Forty Rounds Metal W/general John Logan Photo:
From an old estate is a GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) medal from the 1860s
It has the image of General John A. Logan who was the first commander in chief of the GAR
It has a 5 point star with LOGAN spelled out on each point
I think the 40 rounds could be for Vicksburg? I'm not sure. I think it means that each soldier was given 40 rounds of ammo. I'm sure if you're looking at this sale, you know more than I do about this!2 1/4"
I have other GAR pieces which I will be listing
