One of the more frequent requests we receive at the Spanish American
War Centennial Website is to help identify medals from the time period.
There were many medals issued - some officially by the Federal Government,
some by state governments, the Spanish War Veterans organzation, and by
the many military organizations themselves. We cannot show every medal,
but we will begin by adding a variety of what we have available. If you
have a medal not represented, send us an image of it, along with a the
information you know about (i.e., who received, his background, etc.)
If you have a U.S. government-issued Spanish American War Service
medal with a rim number or a Spanish Campaign medals with a rim number,
we may be able to provide you with some information on the original recipient,
such as his name, possibly his homestate, unit, and rank as well.
For recipients of the Sampson medal, we can verify rank and ship name by
the rim number. This information is only available for these medals since
the numbers on state-issued medals are not traceable! If you have a numbered
U.S. government issued medal and want this information, simply provide
the information to Andrew Lipps, one of our correspondents by clicking
here (please note...this is free for individuals. If you are a dealer
with a large number of medals, contact Andrew and work something out).
