    10th Regiment New Hampshire Infantry: George Marden Dog Tag.
    27 mm gilt brass. The obverse shows a displayed eagle and reads: "War of 1861 United States". The reverse is stamped: "G. W. Marden/ Co. D/ 10th Regt/ N.H.V./ Nashua". Marden (1839-1930) mustered in September 1, 1862 and was discharged for disability on April 2, 1863. This unit fought at Fredericksburg, Drewry's Bluff, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. The tag was dug at Petersburg in 1973. The obverse has a dark patina with some verdigris deposits. The reverse retains gilding in the devices and displays nicely. Given the battle history of the unit, it seems likely Marden reenlisted once he recovered from his disability.
