A rare, solid silver presentation medal / fob. Presented to J.Wilson on the 4th July 1858 by Capt. Wm. Manson of the New York Highland Guard, a company of the New York State Militia.

It would appear that commemorative parades where held each year on the 4th July by the N.Y Highland Guard. The image below shows an 1857 printed order of the New York Highland Guard.The order refers to a parade in full uniform, this order is dated (4th July 1857) a year earlier than the 1858 date on this medal, . The order was given by Captain William Manson. (The image of the printed order is for reference only, not part of the sale)

The New York Highland Guard was formed by New York citizens of Scottish descent. This was an early example of Scots overseas adopting Highland identity in the military service of their new home countries. As the 79th Highlanders (New York Volunteers), this unit formed a regiment that served with the Union army during the American Civil War. Its first Colonel was named Cameron, who renamed the regiment in honour of the original 79th Cameron Highlanders. He was killed at the first battle of Bull Run in 1861.

Please Note: The medal would originally have had a suspension hole, this has worn away over the years, most probably due to friction caused by suspension on a chain. Other than this the medal is in exceptionally good condition with clear and crisp engraving. Medal Size: 1" x 1" (2.5cm x 2.5cm) : Weight 4.5 grams
