Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals
Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals: by noted historian Fred J. Borgmann. This book is superior to any state and local medal book ever published, 173 full color 8x11 pages, printed on 70# digital white paper, coil bound making this book both user friendly and durable. Over 300 listings of which well over 200 are fully illustrated. Listings include physical descriptions with color scans of the front and back. Historical footnotes and photos are also included where appropriate. There are many rare and unique medals listed in this book. The cover design features a colorized copy of a rare and virtually unknown Fredric Remington drawing which was presented to the Milwaukee Light Horse Squadron on their twentieth anniversary in 1899. The listings include more than just the medals earned by veterans. To prevent future misattributions both accidental and intentional souvenir medals are included that were sold to the public to fund celebrations and a monument plus some fobs that were sold at the summer camps of old.
Reproductions are listed in the hope that this information will save collectors more than a few dollars. There are some very rare and interesting military and civilian medals in addition to a section of presentation badges. The new order of this catalog begins with the general issues of the Wisconsin National Guard, the issues of the individual units. Next a listing of some interesting and unusual medals that have been uncataloged. An extensive listing of medals issued for war service. To transition from the military to the civilian sections there is a listing of the University of Wisconsin Corps of Cadets (R.O.T.C.) issues and an extensive alphabetical listing of medals from the St. Johnís Military Academy.
