Massachusetts Minute Men 1861 Civil War 1st Bronze Antique Medal G. Antique Massachusetts Minute Men 1861 Civil War First Defender First Call Medal George H. Fish 3rd Regiment Massachusetts Infantry (Militia). One of the most Gorgeous Medals Issued to those who served in the Union during the Civil War. The Medal is wonderful cast with the Massachusetts Native American Indian in the center and the arm and sword motif above.On the back of the Medal it proudly reads The Commonwealth of Massachusetts to the Members of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia who were mustered into the United States Service in response to President Lincoln's. This medal is in very good++ original condition with a great patina with just a couple small areas of green oxidation.
This piece was found in an envelope tucked away in an 18th century chest of drawers from our own collection and has never before been brought to market. We have had it for over thirty years and the chest of drawers was a family heirloom though there is no connection between any of our family members to the medal, as such we are offering it to a collector who can appreciate it. Fish was a member of the 3rd regiment.
His name is clearly stamped on the edge of the medal. Thanks for visiting our offerings!
