<b>U.S. Congressman from New York</b>


(1813-98) A lawyer, he was a devout Democrat and upheld the Southern point of view on most issues. He served as a U.S. Congressman from New York from 1857-61, firmly supporting states rights. A delegate to the Democratic convention of 1860, he believed the North was responsible for Southern discontent. Despite these feelings, when secession became a reality, he supported the Union, and recruited the 65th New York Infantry, and served as their first colonel. He was promoted to brigadier general of U.S. Volunteers on June 11, 1862. In the interim he commanded his regiment at Seven Pines during the Peninsular campaign, and served with General John Newton's division of the 6th Corps at Fredericksburg. Resigning from the army due to ill health, he was soon elected attorney general of New York. The following year he was nominated for vice president, running with John C. Fremont, but the ticket was withdrawn before the election, and Cochrane actively supported Abraham Lincoln for reelection.

Bust view of General McClellan in uniform on the obverse with his name, Geo. B. McClellan above, and the year 1863 below. Army & Navy within wreath design with crossed sabers and anchor on the reverse. The token retains much of its original luster. Rare to find this nice.  


(1805-1871) Graduated in the West Point class of 1825. He participated in the Black Hawk, Florida and Mexican Wars and was twice brevetted for gallantry. In November 1860, he was ordered to Charleston Harbor to command the three United States forts there; Castle Pickney, Fort Moultrie, and Fort Sumter, in the face of South Carolina's imminent secession. Anderson refused a formal demand for his surrender and in the early morning hours of April 12, 1861, Fort Sumter was bombarded, and the Civil War began. His small garrison withstood 36 hours under fire before being compelled to surrender. Anderson became a national hero for his gallant actions. He personally raised the U.S. flag over Fort Sumter on April 14, 1865, exactly four years after he had hauled it down.
