Civil War patriotic ribbon We have digitally reproduced an original Pro-Union patriotic ribbon. Perfect to wear to Civil War events or to show your patriotism today!

From Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 23, June - November, 1861: "The passengers in the streets wear badges, rosettes, & 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 & one question. The people are soldiers. The country is a camp. It is war." I first came across references to patriotic cockades & ribbons while researching my book, "Cadet Gray & Butternut Brown", & have since done more extensive research on the subject, & 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, & a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity.
