UCV Confederate Veteran Civil War Medal 1936 Louisiana
As with anything Confederate, there are an awful lot of fake UCV medals out there.This one is the type you look at and immediately find absolutely no doubt. Great look and great condition except for the wear on the ribbon (See photos). The top bar indicates this was the 1936 reunion at Shreveport Louisiana and has a likeness of Robert E Lee on the left and Stonewall Jackson on the right. The bottom indicates UCV with two different Confederate flags with nearly perfect paint as well as a likeness of P.G.T. Beauregard who was a favorite son of Louisiana and definitely had the coolest name of all the Confederate generals. Both top and bottom are backmarked GREENDUCK CO. CHICAGO. Reverse of the medal reads 46TH ANNUAL REUNION JUNE 9-12 1936. Yeah, Chicago. Great medal even if it was made in a weird place.
