    7th Maryland Infantry: Richard Anderson Dog Tag.
    30 mm gilt brass. The obverse has a shield inscribed "Union" in the center and the words "Against Rebellion 1861". The reverse is stamped: "Richd. E. Anderson./ Co. B. 7th/ Md./ Vol." A fine example with some traces of the original gilding on the reverse and only light wear. Anderson (1843-1924), a shoemaker by trade, enlisted on August 8, 1862 and mustered out May 31, 1865. Their company history (included) indicates they fought at Gettysburg, Rappahannock Station, Bristoe Station, the Wilderness, among others. Tags from Maryland are quite elusive, as the state had mixed loyalties with residents serving in both Union and Confederate units.
