Description

Outstanding Confederate veterans medal from the Fulton County Veterans Association. Belonging to former Confederate soldier Richard Burch Jett of Georgia. Richard would serve with Company B of the 9th Georgia Battalion Light Artillery from April, 1863 through 1865 serving in Tennessee, Virginia and Atlanta at wars end. The medal remains in it’s original box still pinned to the red silk interior padding. The face of the box is affixed with an old shipping label addressed to one of Richard’s son’s, Clarendon E. Jett. It was sent to Clarendon by his younger brother Ewell L. Jett. Presumably sent to Clarendon by his younger brother Ewell sometime after their fathers passing in 1905. Scant service information seems to be available for Richard. Emory University is however in possession of 35 letters written by or to Richard, a diary which he kept during his service with the Confederacy as well as a farming agreement dated 1866 and several genealogical and historical records related to the family. This is accompanied by folder containing a number of research documents and information on Richard, Clarendon and Ewell. Super neat one of a kind piece!
