Fraternal ribbon consisting of metal badge-bar over red, white, and blue silk ribbon layers trimmed in metallic fringe. The crescent moon and star symbol in the center of the ribbon is the emblem for the U.S 7th Army Corps, a department of the Union army during the Civil War. The donor (John Arrell Johnson) served as an officer in the Sixth Kansas Cavalry during the war. The Sixth Kansas Cavalry came under the administration of the U.S. 7th Army Corps in 1864. This ribbon apparently commemorates a post-war reunion of the 7th Army Corps in Washington, D.C., which the donor would have participated in because of his wartime service.
