Fraternal ribbon composed of yellow silk with an off-white silk top layer. The donor (John Arrell Johnson) had served as the first lieutenant, captain, and major of Company A of the Sixth Kansas Cavalry during the Civil War. The Sixth was organized in Fort Scott, Kansas in 1861 and served in the Union Army during the Civil War. Its soldiers formed their own veterans organization after the war. The donor probably received this ribbon at a recognition ceremony for members of this company.

Date: between 1860 and 1890
