    Great find and research. It's hard to fathom all of the battles, all of the marching, disease and sickness. What a terrible war that was. One in ten military aged men died and more than half of those died from disease.
    That ID tag is a survivor like soldier it belonged to. I vote banner as well

    Super find!! Sometimes I like to find 'tokens' like that in place of coins.
