    Was pretty overwhelming. I also got emotional as I started finding the soldier's information.

I didn't realize they had those back then and it makes sense that people would purchase them. what a center piece for a collection or even for a museum. Wow, so wonderful. congrats on the find that blows a lot of us away!
    Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm just humbled by the history of this relic.

    Most likely not, due to the fact that there would be lots of descendants. Wouldn't want to stir up strife. BUT I wouldn't rule it out.

    Thanks for the nice post and pics.

    The nutria was introduced to Louisiana in the 1930s.

    Best of luck to you all in 2019.
    Thank you so much for the banner vote. I appreciate your reply my friend, and wish you good luck this year as well!

    Great mud hunt guys! The rain was crazy this year. You know hunting civil war stuff you always hope to find a name on something. To know who it was that was there. It's great you found this I.D tag and was able to track it all down. Its rare when a relic can be tied to one specific person.
    My vote is in.
    Happy 2019!

    Buck thatís an insane find! I lived in Bangor for a few years and still reside in Maine. As you said it must have been a complete shock going from Bangor, ME to a place that was virtually unrecognizable. I have such admiration for these soldiers who were wounded and still felt compelled to go serve in whatever capacity they were able. My god what a find. BANNER....not that I feel I even have to say it

    That looks like an amazing hunt congrats! Great research and good description of it! That looks like a once in a lifetime find. Thanks to your post awhile back I cleaned up some silver very nicely. I'm curious did you clean this with just a toothpick no brushing etc? I probably would have made the mistake of using water. Do you have any photo's of the cleaned up obverse side?
