    Description

    Jefferson Davis & Robert E. Lee: Memorial Ribbons. Pair of mourning ribbons. The Jefferson Davis measures 2.25" x 9", and was issued in Augusta, Georgia on December 11, 1889. On that day twenty thousand people lined the streets of New Orleans as the body of Jefferson Davis was taken, by funeral carriage, to Metairie Cemetery in the crescent city. The funeral procession included those who wore the gray during the War Between the States. The silk ribbon is in excellent condition. The silk Lee ribbon measures 2.5" x 6", and was likely issued at the time of his death on October 12, 1870. The ribbon has a bold image of Lee with the Confederate flag above. Mounted on paper from previous presentation, else fine.
