    Civil War Kearny Cross Presented to Sergeant James P. Fraser Co. A 68th Regiment Pennsylvania Infantry [WIA Chancellorsville].
    The Kearny Cross was a military decoration of the United States Army, which was first established in 1862. The original decoration was known as the Kearny Medal and was adopted as an unofficial medal by the officers of the 1st Division, 3rd Corps, of the Union Army of the Potomac, which had served under Major General Philip Kearny.

    The cross measures 1 5/8" across and 3 5/8" including the ribbon. The front is engraved "Kearny Cross", and the reverse is engraved "Birney's Division". Included with the medal is Fraser's discharge from the service. The medal is in excellent condition, the discharge has reinforced splits at the folds. James Primrose Fraser, Jr. [b. 1836] of Philadelphia served in the 98th PA and the 68th PA. He was wounded on May 3, 1863 at Chancellorsville for which he was awarded the Kearny Cross. He subsequently served in the Invalid Corps and lived out his days in Vallejo, California.
