This case contains the Coventry family archive of medals dating from the Civil War Corps Badge of Captain C. B. Coventry of the 24th New York Cavalry to other members of the Coventry family that served through WWII. The most valuable medal is of course the Solid Gold Corps Badge of Captain Coventry as presented to him from the non commissioned officers of the 24th New York Cavalry. The other medals and their owners still need to be researched. The wonderful Corps Badge has its recipients name on the front with crossed sabers motif with the top piece being engraved with battle honors of Cedar Mountain, Rappahannock Station, Thouroughfare Gap, Bull Run, Antietam and South Mountain. Coventry has a great service record having mustered into the 26th NY. Infantry in early 1861 as a private and working his way to Lieut. Colonel of the 24th NY Cavalry. In between his service with these two regiments, Coventry also served with the 157th (also as a Captain) who took extremely heavy losses at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. I don't have time to search the histories of the other medals and their service, but suffice to say I will not separate these family medals. They should be kept together and I will sell them that way. What the new owner chooses to do afterwards is up to them. A great Corps Badge Medal and history of a families service to their country.
