Civil War Confederate Southern Cross
The 1861-1865 Southern Cross of Honor was a military decoration meant to honor the men for their valor in the Armed Forces of the Confederate States of America. Due to shortages of metals in the south, the majority were never minted. The names of these soldiers were recorded and preserved. In 1898 members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy decided to produce the original medal. Design: Face: Cross with a Confederate Battle Flag surrounded by a laurel wreath. The four arms of the cross are inscribed: Southern Cross of Honor. Reverse: In center a laurel wreath encircling the inscription "DEO VINDICE" 1861, 1865. The four arms of the cross are inscribed United Daughters of the Confederacy. To the U.C.V. The medal measures approximately 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" and is suspended from a plain bar. This Southern Cross of Honor has a deep rich aged bronze patina. It is marked Whitehead & Hoag Co. Newark, N.J. in tiny letters. The pin-back which screws onto the fixture on the back of the bar is also marked Whitehead & Hoag Co. It is highly unusual to find this particular marking. This item has been reduced from $425 to $395! SOLD!
