H/60th NYVV" indicating the badge was acquired after Vaughan's re-enlistment in December 1863. Vaughan enlisted in the 60th Sept. 21, 1861 and served with the unit until muster out on July 17, 1865. The 60th New York was also known as "The St. Lawrence regiment" and was engaged throughout the war including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg where the regiment was instrumental in the defense of Culp's Hill. The regiment lost 67 men killed and mortally wounded. The set is accompanied by a period ink script tag, "This needle cushion was A. C. Vaughan's and carried through the War presented by Emma Fisher 1861(sic)." Great set with wonderful history.
