Stunner of a 6th Corps ID badge belonging to Hiram M. Fifield from his time spent serving with the 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery. This one is a beeaauuttyyyy! Hiram would initially enlist with the 5th Vermont Volunteer Infantry in August, 1861. The 20 year old Hiram would muster with Company H and be present with the regiment as they began to march up the Peninsular in May, 1862. He would take part in the Siege of Yorktown, Battle of Williamsburg, Savage Station, White Oak Swamp and Malvern Hill. Following Malvern Hill the regiment would encamp at Harrison’s Landing. While encamped here, Hiram would fall ill and was transferred to Satteriee General Hospital back in Philadelphia. He would remain there until November when he was discharged for a disability. Following a years absence, Hiram would volunteer his services once again. This time in August, 1864 when he would muster with Battery C of the 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery. Present with the regiment this time through it’s entire term, he would see action in a number of engagements beginning in September, 1864 with the Third Battle of Winchester. It would be followed by Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek before joining the Siege of Petersburg at the end of the year. 1865 would see the continued Siege of Petersburg and the Appomattox Campaign. Hiram would be discharged for good in June, 1865. This is a drop dead beauty of a badge. Solid silver and engraved across the front, “H.M. Fifield Bat. C. 1st Art. Vt. Vol”. This one does still retain the pin back on it. Killer 6th Corps ID badge!
