    Army Maneuvers 1908 - Pine Plains NY - Medal

    I dug this fob commemorating the Vermont 1st infantry regiment at the 1908 Army maneuvers in Pine Plains NY. I believe this was the Vermont National Guard unit. 1908 was the opening year of the camp which became Fort Drum. General Frederick Dent Grant (son of President Grant) commanded the Eastern Department and was present. Regular Army and National Guard units in the northeast were all there. Some online documents online talk about the Vermont deployment. Pretty cool. Anybody know this relic or similar?

    Wonder if it was a fob instead of a medal?

    Cool either way, nice recovery.

    Yep, it's a watch fob. I researched a little more after first post. There were general commemoration medallions as well. I think Vermont only sent the 1 regiment, but having the unit named on the relic and being the first year ... nice little bit of state history.
