The 2nd Ga Cav was part of Confederate General Joe Wheeler's Cavalry. This grouping consist of several unique items. Beside the rare tintype, there is a Wheeler Cavalry Corp Association badge & ribbon which was part of the United Confederate Veterans Association.Elizabeth Crawford who was very big in the Maids of the UCV sent this Col John Prather who was the commander of the Wheeler Cav Association and one of Gen Wheeler's Brigade Commanders during the war. This group also has his UDC Southern Cross of Honor and a CNC hat badge. The card has a note from Miss. Why she sent them to him is a mystery that is lost to time. Very interesting group of rare Confederate items with a GREAT History. I have many other photos as only being able to post 12 does not begin to show all the items as they should be. Just drop me a note and I will send you more.
