Description

Isaac Davis Post No. 138 was named for the captain from Acton, Massachusetts who commanded the minuteman company that marched on the Alarm of April 19th, 1775.

British regulars marched on the towns of Lexington, and Concord that morning and first engaged Lexington militia on the green, where the first shots were fired that ignited the American War for Independence.  Davis was the first American officer killed in the American Revolution, shot through the heart at Old North Bridge at Concord.

This badge was created in 1890, made of brassy-bronze by John Harriott of Boston.  I believe 1890 was the year of the Boston National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic.

Can’t believe their are many of these out there, and the first we have seen.
