    Description

    [Abraham Lincoln]. 4th New Hampshire Infantry: 1st Sergeant Daniel Gile Dog Tag,
    A Union identification disc, 30mm gilt brass. Carried by 1st Sergeant Daniel Gile of Manchester, New Hampshire. These disks were carried so that in the event the soldier was killed, his body could be identified and hopefully sent home to his family. The disk is decorated with a profile image of Abraham Lincoln on obverse and reads: "Abraham Lincoln, President, U.S., War of 1861." On reverse it reads: "D Gile/4 N.H. INF." Gile enlisted at the age of 22 on September 18, 1861 and was mustered into Company G, 4th New Hampshire Infantry. He was captured by Confederate forces at Deep Bottom Run, Virginia, but was later paroled. He survived the war and was mustered out of military service on May 15, 1865. Tag has light wear and minor oxidation. Holed for suspension.
