American Civil War
Patriotic Cockades (Rosettes):
'The Arkansian', Fayetteville, Arkansas, 5 January 1861 informs us that 'The Union Cockade.—This is also a double rosette, the center one being of red silk, the inner one of white silk, and the pendants of blue. The gilt button that fastens the whole together shows the eagle of America, surrounded by the stars of the United States.' As will be seen many were different than that.
