    Description

    Excavated Silver Identification Circlet Worn by New York Cavalryman Imprisoned at Andersonville. This battlefield-found 1.125" inch ring is clearly engraved "GEO H. LAMB/ CO. L. 5TH N.Y Cav.," a veteran of Gettysburg's famed "Farnsworth's Charge." The thin ring has a deep patina and is missing its pin fastener. It may possibly have had an additional center device, such as a mounted horseman, now also missing. Lamb enlisted as an eighteen-year-old in February 1863 and fought at Gettysburg, Kilpatrick's "Richmond Raid," the Wilderness Campaign, and more. He was captured at Stoney Creek and sent to Andersonville from which he was paroled in April 1865, mustering out two months later. Unusual and historic, complete with brief service record.
