This is a rare 1918 Maid of Honor badge for the 28th reunion of the United Confederate Veterans (UCV), the Confederate answer to the Union’s Grand Army of the Republic formed in 1889. The reunion that year was held at Tulsa, Oklahoma. The badge was made by Whitehead & Hoag of Newark, New Jersey and has a maker label still affixed to the reverse.
