A contact recently brought this badge to my attention and I’m looking for more information about it, or badges like it. I believe the “J. F. Poore” on the badge is my ancestor John F. Poore, one of the Poore Boys In Gray.

I presume this was a badge issued by the United Confederate Veterans.

  • Did the UCV award or sell these badges?
  • What was the purpose of the badge?
  • Is there a way of dating the badge?

If you have any information, I would appreciate you leaving a comment.
