    Irish Brigade - 9th Massachusetts Infantry Bone Ring. Polished bone with painted decoration in fine condition. The top of the ring has been artfully incised "MS 9 Inf" and filled in with black paint. On either side of the top portion are nicely incised and painted federal shields. The ring is a small size. The 9th Massachusetts Infantry regiment saw extensive service during the war including Mechanicsville, Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and the Wilderness Campaign among others. The regiment lost 15 officers and 194 enlisted men to combat. The unit was the subject of noted Civil War artist Don Troiani's painting Brothers of Ireland depicting them in battle at Gaines Mill. Four days later, at Malvern Hill, Lieutenant John Tobin of this unit would be awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions.
