The medal was first authorized in 1905 for the fortieth anniversary of the Civil War's conclusion. The blue and gray ribbon denotes the respective uniform colors of the U.S. and Confederate troops. The Army Civil War Campaign Medal was established by the United States War Department on January 21, 1907, by General Orders Number 12. To qualify, a soldier had to serve between April 15, 1861, and April 9, 1865. The award was intended for both Union and Confederate soldiers. When it was discovered that medal qualifications included the words Active Federal Military Service, the Congressional Act of 1945 had those words removed. Confederate flags would use the campaign streamers with the Gray edge up and the Union flags with the blue edge up. The campaign lettering requires two distinct sets of streamers for each campaign, one set for each side. The closing date was extended to August 20, 1866, date of President Johnson's Proclamation ending the war. The corresponding Navy Civil War Medal was established on June 27, 1908, by Navy Department.Thank you, and Rest in Peace, brave and valiant soldier. The Republic lives on, blood-bought at a horrible price.

Marcellus risked his life to save my third great uncle, Private Chandler that summer day in 1864. For that, though John eventually died of his wounds, he will forever me remembered by my family. Thank you. Rest well.
