Just in time for the Civil War Sesquicentennial - we have digitally reproduced an original Pro-Union patriotic ribbon. Perfect to wear to the upcoming early war events. Can be worn with a a red, white and blue cockade, pinned to a top hat or bonnet, or worn with a red or blue ribbon. This is a one of a kind ribbon that you will NOT see sold elsewhere.

From Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 23, June - November, 1861:

"The passengers in the streets wear badges, rosettes, and cockades of the trinity of patriotic colors. In shawls, in cravats, in ribbons, the same tricolor appears. . . You feel something in men's motions; you see 'something in the general manner of the throng in the street before you read it recorded upon the board or in the paper. There is but one thought and one question. The people are soldiers. The country is a camp. It is war."

I first came across references to patriotic cockades and ribbons while reseraching my book, "Cadet Gray and Butternut Brown", and have since done more extensive research on the subject, and have given presentations on the same.

Ribbon measures 5" long x 2" in width.

A portion of the proceeds of this sale will go to the West Side Soldiers Aid Society, a research-based living history organization, a modern-day soldiers' aid society, and a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. For more information, please go to www.wssas.org
