It is associated to Sherman B. Sherman served in the 117th New York Infantry as shown in one of the attached photo's. He was awarded this ribbon at the 18th annual encampment, Department of Michigan, by the citizens of Saginaw, Michigan in 1896. The celluloid attachment makes this ribbon very special. It is in very nice condition for being 124 years old.It measures 5 1/2 inches long and is 3 inches at its widest part. The celluloid attachment depicts a neat lumbering scene from the Saginaw area. Sherman Daboll served in the Civil War for three years in Company G. He was wounded in the arm at Petersburg, Virginia. Following the war he studied Law and eventually became a Judge in Michigan. He also served as a Commander of the GAR for a few years. I have attached some information that explains more about his life. Those attachments are not included in the sale, but can easily be found in Google. I was born and raised in Michigan so I have a strong interest in collecting Civil War related items. My Uncle Henry McKinstry served in the 5th Michigan Cavalry and fought with General George Custer and the Michigan Cavalry Brigade.
Many of my listings are associated with the Custer and the Michigan Cavalry Brigade. This item will make a nice addition to your Civil War Collection.
