1886 Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic Medal
ladies of the grand army medal 1886

The Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) was organized in 1866 as Union veterans of the Civil War. Mostly men, there were two known females admitted, Kady Brownell who served in the Union Army with her husband and Sarah Emma Edmonds, who served in the 2nd Michigan Infantry as a disguised man named Franklin. Both served bravely and were buried with military honors. In 1881, the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic was established to help the aging veterans and to aid their widows and orphans. The group went national in 1886 and remains the oldest women’s hereditary organization in the United States, continuing to support veterans rights. We offer an 1886 three piece Ladies of the G.A.R. medal. The top bar reads “F.C.L.” for Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty. The medal is 2 ½” long and is in excellent condition.  Supplies are very limited of this amazing 133 year old medal…
