CKL   Interesting about your GAR medal.  I am a DOB  daughter of both .  Member of both Daughters organizations.  The Daughters of Union Vets I belong to was organized a couple of years ago and I am a charter member.  We were given a set of officers pins from a tent that was deactivated many years ago.  We kept discussing what to do with the pins.  At first we had them in a case that was brought to meetings and kept by the president.  Last meeting we decided to give the pins to the officers to wear.  I am now , as long as I am Junior Vice President , the owner of a lovely old Daughters pin with it's orginal ribbon even on it .   I too would love to have an Edwardian suit to wear to special events like I see in pictures of the Daughters at the turn of the last century.  Hopefully I can have one made in the future.  I would also love to have a white linen suit  Edwardian style
