    Pair of Sergeant's Chevrons Worn by Watson R. Gribbin, Co. E., 13th Maine Volunteer Infantry. 8" x 6", worsted-tape chevrons on blue felt backing. The chevrons are laid-on to a 9" x 12" paper backing with a typed caption mounted to the lower edge: "THESE CHEVRONS WERE WORN BY SERGEANT W. R. GRIBBIN CO. E. 13TH MAINE REGIMENT - VETERAN VOLUNTEERS FROM 1861-1865". Watson Gribbin was a native of Portland, Maine who enlisted on December 10, 1861 and mustered into E Company of the 13th Maine Volunteer Infantry as a corporal. He was promoted to sergeant sometime in 1863 and transferred out of the 13th on January 1, 1865. The chevrons show honest wear from use with some slight staining, soiling to the chevrons and insect damage to the wool backing. Otherwise, they are in excellent condition.
