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
