    Twice-Wounded Philadelphia Fire Zouave Identification Disk. This typical, commercially made ID badge has the familiar profile of George Washington raised on one side. One the reverse is stamped "ROBERT DUBOURG/CO. E./72d REG/PHIla F. Z./PHIL. PENN." The disk is suspended by a simple stamped brass "eagle" pin with a spring wire fastener. Dubourg joined as a corporal in August, 1861, rose to sergeant in July, 1864 and was mustered out the following month. Records show that he was wounded both at Fredericksburg on December 13, 1862 and at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863. A very nice badge worn by a brave non-com.
