These Civil War Tokens all feature a motif or slogan related to the Army as the central design. Slogans such as “Our Army”, “Hero of Pea Ridge”, “Rhode Island First In The Field”, “No Compromise with Traitors” and “I am Ready” are included as well as images of Generals Burnside and Sigel, the “Pilgrim” (perhaps so named for his Pilgrim-like hat), the “Amazon” bare-breasted Miss Liberty advancing into battle, and the Bunker Hill monument erected between 1827 and 1843 on Breed’s Hill in Charleston, MA to commemorate the first major conflict between the Patriot and British armies.
