Item #: WR953

This is a Southern Cross of Honor presented to J. M. Green. The Southern Cross of Honor was created by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and established in 1898. It was bestowed upon Confederate veterans who displayed "Loyal and Honorable service to the South". The medal was first issued in 1900. A search of the Civil War database revealed 1206 Confederate soldiers with either the initial of J.M. Green or a first name beginning with a J, middle or no initial of M. and the last name of Green. The soldiers listed represent every Confederate state. There is virtually no way of narrowing it down any further with the information I have on hand. It's to bad, because there is one Tennessee guy , J.M. Green, that was in Company M, 7th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment under Colonel Duckworth! This is a very nice example of a Southern Cross that will fit into any UCV collection.
