|The Century - Cold Harbor, VA
|Alan V. Weinberg comments: Ex Anthony Terranova many yrs ago. Tony still remembers and mentioned the medal recently to me. A magnificent, large, hand-engraved and hand- assembled (separate rim) gold medal depicting the heat of battle at Cold Harbor, Va and a lifesaving scene. The officer being carried is a direct descendant of the Peter Porter of War of 1812 Congressional gold medal fame. One of the most impressive & visually appealing Civil War gold medals. Hand inscribed on rim.
