I took it with me to Gettysburg earlier this year and ask at one of the antique shops they thought that it may be a GAR group but I’m not %100 sure . And thank you for the welcome.Welcome to CWT from the Smoky Mountain side of North Carolina. Just jump right in and enjoy. Although I am not an expert the photo to me looks like a reunion of some kind? Hard to tell from the photo.
Very helpful . What do you think of my photo ? Do you think it could be GAR ?
Thank youWelcome From THE Heart Of Dixie. The photo is so grainy that it is hard to see just what they are wearing but what they are wearing is a lot bigger that any GAR ribbons I have seen. Be sure to stop by the Weapons & Ammo, Uniforms & Relics and Vicksburg forums. Be sure to check out our annual get together "CWT Invades Vicksburg". Hope you can joins us. https://civilwartalk.com/threads/cw...tour-the-official-thread.155709/#post-2006411
That’s very helpful thank you .Four-footed Friends of the Civil War forum.View attachment 315781
I'm afraid your photo does not look G.A.R. to me. The ribbons are not the usual style, none of the men is wearing anything resembling a G.A.R. uniform (which in many cases is not too different from a civilian jacket). More significantly, none of them seems to be wearing a G.A.R. member's lapel pin or badge.
Most of the men in the last picture (post #12) appear to be wearing G.A.R. uniform jackets, and lapel pins and/or ribbons.
Thank you ! I think I need to look into GAR ribbons . I think the picture is from the 1890’s and i have seen ribbons made just for a local reunion and some seem to be wearing 2 ribbons . I will keep looking into it I only payed a dollar for the picture so if it’s not GAR no big loss .I'm thinking it probably isn't , but it sure is interesting .
