Object Name Medal, Commemorative
Catalog Number 0985.07.00135v
Description The commemorative medal consists of three parts - bar pin, ribbon, and pendant. The brass bar pin is rectangular shaped, containing four raised images of flower blossoms. A red, white, and blue vertically striped (one each color) silk ribbon hangs from the bar pin and contains no markings. A round silver-colored pendant suspends from the ribbon. Raised lettering of different sizes in the middle of the pendant reads, "HISTORY / WILL PRESERVE / THE HEROIC RECORD / OF THE / DAUNTLESS SPIRITS / TO WHOM THIS / MONUMENT / WAS ERECTED." A relief image laurel wreath surrounds the lettering. A narrow serrated edge follows the perimeter of the pendant. The back of the medal rests against the backing of the frame and is therefore, not visible. This medal is part of a large framed collection (0985.7.135); the rest of the collection is enumerated separately (0985.7.135a- 0985.7.135u, 0985.7.135w-0985.7.135hh).
