Hello, I am new to the forums here. I do some metal detecting and militaria collecting as well. I was hoping for some info about a medal and manual I picked up yesterday. The Medal is engraved John Hickey and the manual has a handwritten notation..." Uncle John Hickey's". Any help would be appreciated. Paul

It is not numbered and I think yours is a Association of Veteran's and not the smaller Dames.

Thanks for the information. The manual is Casey's Infantry manual 1862 vol. 1. Is it at all possible that this man fought in both wars?...or maybe just had the Civil war manual amongst his later life possessions? Paul
