Secession Cockades were worn in the 1860s by anyone who sympathized with the southern cause. The first secession flags in South Carolina were red and white. Thus, many secession cockades were also red and white. Military buttons, stars and pictures of famous people were often used as centers for these emblems of patriotism.
Civilian ladies and gentlemen, military men, children, and even horses and wagons were adorned with these patriotic symbols.
This cockade is approximately 3" wide. The sterling silver pin back is 1" wide.
Perfect for Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and any patriotic celebration of American history!
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
