A ribbon from the 25th 'Silver' reunion of the 66th Illinois Western Sharpshooters from August 5-6th, 1908 held in Watervliet, Michigan. The red ribbon has all the information visible in black ink - and does not show up the best. It has a picture of Ren Barker who wrote the regimental history and was the basis of the book by Blue Acorn Press, "With the Western Sharpshooters". Ren was a Sgt. in Company D - the Michigan Company - which incidentally is the only company that I have seen ribbons out of.

As many know, I collect this units memorabilia, but just so happens I have a duplicate of this ribbon. This would be a cool piece to display with your Dimick projectiles.
