CIVIL WAR Medal of Honor - 46th Mass. Vetís RIBBON GROUP



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Offered here from a small cash of Co. A 46th Mass. Regimental Association ribbons emanating from Congressional Medal of Honor winner and association Commander, Andrew S. Bryant are eight ribbons beginning with a fine circa 1880 ribbon that doubled as a pass to the festivities. The ribbon bears the following in gold print on the face Co. A. Association, 46th Regt. M.V.M., sixth annual, REUNION AND CLAM BAKE, at Callupís Grove, Wednesday, July 21, 1880, show this badge at the boat and tables, STEAMER RIVER BELL, Will leave pier one, foot of State Street, half past one oíclock P. M. sharp. The group contains 5 additional ribbons, one each for reunions held in 1883 Ė 84 - 88Ė 1890 and 1895. These ribbons came together from among Andrew Bryantís things left from when he was Commander of the 46th Mass Veteran Association and are in excellent condition after decades of storage.
Andrew Symmes Bryant was a 21 year old banker in Springfield Mass. when he enlisted and mustered in on August 15, 1862 as a Sergeant of Co. A 46th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Bryant would be promoted to Sgt. Major and was awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery on the field at the Battle of New Bern, North Carolina on May 23, 1863. His citation reads: The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Sergeant Andrew Symmes Bryant, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 23 May 1863, while serving with Company A, 46th Massachusetts Infantry, in action at New Bern, North Carolina. By his courage and judicious disposition of his guard of 16 men, stationed in a small earthwork at the head of the bridge, Sergeant Bryant held in check and repulsed for a half hour a fierce attack of a strong force of the enemy, thus probably saving the city New Bern from capture.
After the Civil War Bryant returned to Springfield where he was an active member of the Co. A 46th MVM Veteran Association and GAR Post 16. He died on October 6, 1931 and rests in Springfield Cemetery, Springfield, Massachusetts. A really nice Civil War veteran group with association to one of the warís Medal of Honor recipients. You will be well pleased with the condition of the old manís ribbons. Our letter of provenance will accompany the group.
