    40th New York "Mozart Regiment" Silver I.D. Badge for Jonathan Bernhard.
    24 mm x 32 mm thin silver shield engraved "Jno Bernhard Co A 40th N.Y.V." Some slight bends. T-bar pin attachment on verso missing. Bernhard first enlisted at Staten Island in August 1861. The 40th, or Mozart Regiment, was formed under the auspices of the Mozart Hall Committee in New York, a political organization. They fought at the Battle of Gettysburg under the command of Col. Thomas W. Egan, engaging Benning's Georgia Brigade and Law's Alabama Brigade, charging seven times down the course of Plum Run, into the boulders of Devil's Den and the Slaughter Pen. Bernhard was captured at the Wilderness (where this badge was uncovered), but escaped. He was captured three months later at Weldon Railroad.
