17th Corps Vicksburg Medal of Honor

17th Corps Vicksburg Medal of Honor


General Orders Number 30 By Order of Major General James B. McPherson To encourage and reward meritorious and faithful officers and men of this corps...One of the few sanctioned war time decorations given to Union soldiers during the war which continued to be issued at least to the summer of 1865 including noticeable service actions taken on the Atlanta Campaign.Options were for the medal to be either gold or silver but no reason for one or the other. ***Provide in a separate message what battles aside Vicksburg to be engraved on the front. Otherwise only Vicksburg July 4th 1863 will appear. Check out the pic of one with a 15th Corps badge (made by hand) and attached to one. Interesting and mysterious story behind it for sure.

*Note: for the gold version this will take longer to complete as it must be engraved then plated.

Disclaimer: all my metal pieces with pin backs are attached with industrial adhesive.
