ARTIFACT: Named, early 20th century, 14K gold United States Daughters of 1812 Membership Badge from Texas. The badge features a gilt brass pin bar that reads: "TEXAS" in embossed lettering. A blue and gray ribbon suspended below features an enameled star and anchor planchet that reads: "U. S. D. 1812" in the center of the star. The reverse is named to Texas member Laura Wilbarger Gilbert and is numbered 1935. The society was begun in 1892 as a sorority for women with ancestors who served in either the military or civil service or materially aided the United States military from 1784-1815. This badge came to us along with a Daughters of the Republic of Texas member badge (see links below).
