Civil War 4th Mass., 19th Corps Badge
Just an incredible badge worn by an officer in the 19th Corps, 3rd Division, 4th Massachusetts Infantry.
Jeweller quality of multipiece construction with the top bar inscribed
Henry Carroll Alden, from Randolph, Mass., enlisted in September of 1862 and was commissioned into Co. D of the 4th Massachusetts Infantry. He mustered out August of 1863 and returned to Randolph where he died in 1896. During his time of service the 4th was active in Louisiana campaign at Port Hudson and engaged Confederate units at Franklin. Likely a wartime badge due to the quality and construction.
