43rd New York Volunteer Infantry corp badge
Civil War wartime worn

The vast majority of such badges one finds are made postwar to be worn at reunions and such.  Though many photo's exist of Corps badges in wear, few are found and it is sometimes are to be certain if they are wartime or post war.
This great badge, engraved to the
43rd NYV 6 Corps 3 Brig 2 Div.
is engraved on the reverse by it's creator, Dr A.J. Wright of Fredonia, NY near Albany. Dr. Wright did not serve but was a dentist and died in 1865.

Companies A-D of the 43rd NYVI, the "Albany Rifles" first saw action at the Siege of Yorktown, fought in the Seven Days' battles, took part in the battle of Antietam, engaged at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and the assault on Marye's heights. The brigade reached Gettysburg on July 2 and went into action the next day. The Wilderness campaign proved to be the most fatal for the 43d of any during its service. In the battle of the Wilderness the total loss was 198 members, including 3 field officers killed or mortally wounded.  The regiment was present at the surrender of Lee's Army at Appomattox.

Monument to the 43rd at Gettysburg

The monument is of Quincy granite and stands just under eight feet high. On the front of its its cap is a bronze arrangement of a cartridge box on crossed laurel branches. A round Seal of the State of New York is on the face just above the base. The monument was dedicated by the State of New York on September 17th, 1889.
