(Colonel Houston 1834-1919)
Tricolored Gold (2 x 2.5")- SOLD


Illinois Board of Agriculture, Gold President’s Badge Presented to President Col. William HOUSTON, entire view

Houston attended McMinn Academy before being appointed to West Point. His mathematics teacher was Robert E. LEE.
After two years at West Point he resigned to become a regular soldier and go West to help put down the
Mormon Rebellion of 1857; he became a Pony Express Rider.

At the outbreak of the Civil War he returned home. On April 15, 1862, William Houston helped organize a militia in
Claiborne County, and was elected Captain. This became "Company A" of the 63rd Tennessee Infantry Regiment on
July 30, 1862, and he was promoted to Major. This Regiment of approximately 400 men was commanded
by Lieutenant Colonel Abram FULKERSON, who was previously a Major in the 19th Tennessee Infantry. Both
FULKERSONS were wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga [see Rosecrans]. The 63rd was part of Johnson's
Brigade, operating under the commands of BRAGG, FORREST, HILL, LONGSTREET and Robt. E. LEE during the
war. It saw action in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia. William succeeded his cousin in command of the
63rd, apparently in May 1864. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in late 1864, sometime after he signed a
letter
opposing a reorganization of his division. By April 9, 1865, when the 63rd was surrendered at Appomattox
Court House as part of General A.P. HILL'S Corps, it numbered only 28 men.

After the war he and his wife moved to the Illinois prairie. On their Hazel Dell Stock Farm of 640 acres they built a 12-
room house and raised their five children. Several Jersey County web sites report that guests at Hazel Dell included
his old professor, Robert E. Lee, and Jesse James (there with brother Frank on "banking business"). Besides his
interests in farming, he was president of the Illinois State Board of Agriculture; on the Board of Trustees for the
University of Illinois; general manager of the Chicago, Peoria and St. Louis Railroad during its construction; and vice
president of the First National Bank of Jerseyville. In 1906 he and Cordelia left the farm to their youngest son Frank
and moved into town to live with daughter Sarah and her husband Judge Charles S. White. William died on
December 3, 1919, at the age of 85. Today, the Hazel Dell farm is the site of Civil War reenactments.

Presented by the Government of Pennsylvania
Awarded to Daniel Phillips, a Landsman on the Schooner Tigress
Engraver: Moritz Furst
(Size: 59 mm) - SOLD


Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry Naval Medal, Silver, Extremely Rare
Presented by the Government of Pennsylvania
Awarded to Daniel Phillips, a Landsman on the Schooner Tigress
Engraver: Moritz Furst
(Size: 59 mm), entire view

Obverse: Bust to right, with Furst below truncation, and legends OLIVERUS HAZARD PERRY. PRO PATRIA VICIT [OLIVER HAZARD PERRY. HE CONQUERED FRO HIS COUNTRY]. In exergue: PRESENTED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF PENNSYLVANIA. Reverse: "WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY; AND THEY ARE OURS". PERRY above space for engraving a name and the word to, all above IN TESTAMONEY OF HIS PATRIOTISIM AND BRAVERY IN THE NAVAL ACTION ON LAKE ERIE SEPTEMBER 10. 1813.

Medium to light gray with some deeper toning in the recesses; scattered surface and rim marks consistent with a well handled silver medal. The medal is inscribed on the reverse to Daniel Philips [sic]. Daniel Phillips was a landsman on the schooner Tigress. He is listed in the rolls of the 135th Pennsylvania Militia Regiment. According to the Dictionary of American Fighting Ships, the Tigress was engaged in the September 10th battle at Put-in-Bay, in the Battle of Lake Erie. Perry's victory commemorated by this medal was over Commodore Robert H. Barclay's squadron and, significantly, forced the withdrawal of the British from the area around Lake Erie. This squelched the British plans for raids with their Indian allies into American territory. Daniel Phillips' monthly pay for his service in the war was five-dollars, according to Pennsylvania state records.

The American Numismatic Society Collection contains one silver example, inscribed to John Cook. Prior to the present medals' appearance, this medal has never been seen in silver. The subject medal and the example in the ANS collection are the only silver originals known. For the collector of great American historical medals, this is a prize indeed. See Medals of the United States Mint - The First Century 1792 - 1892 by R.W. Julian, p. 166, NA18 and NA19.
