This excavated 19th corps badge is in good condition and appears to be constructed of brass. It was recovered this year in a Union camp in Smithfield, VA and was acquired direct from the digger. This exact badge is featured on page 14 in the November - December 2014 American Digger Magazine (Volume 10 Issue 6). According to Stanley S. Phillips' reference book, "Civil War Corps Badges and Other Related Awards, Badges, Medals of the Period", the 19th corps badge was "officially adopted per General Orders No. 11, November 17, 1864, from Headquarters, Nineteenth Army Corps, by command of Brevet Major General W. H. Emory.....The badge will be a fan-leaved cross with an octagonal center." While this badge is missing its attachment pin, and does have upward bending of the branches, it has no cracks, breaks, or repairs. This badge will be an excellent addition to any Civil War insignia or general relic collection. Approximately 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 inch.
