Here is a wonderful piece of reunion history from the union side of the Civil War. This is one of the 4 piece veterans badge is referred to by collectors as the "ladder" badge. They get their nickname because when the veteran ordered the badge, he could have his many rungs added to the ladder as he wanted to pay for. This ladder badge has the four rungs. It states that the soldier was in company "I" of the 37th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. This Regiment was organized in Camp Randall in the spring of 1864. They spent their service in Virginia. They fought fiercely at the Battle of Petersburg as well as Rerams' Station and Hatcher's Run. The badge is in nice condition and one thing that is neat about it is that the original pin intact on the reverse was lost, the veteran used thin wire to attach a bobby pin so he could keep on using it. The badge is accompanied by a brief printout of the Civil War service history of the 37th Wisconsin Infantry. The piece measures 2-3/4ths inches x 2 1/8 inches in overall size.
