Presidential Guard Ornament (3rd in series)
The third ornament in the President Lincoln’s Cottage Sesquicentennial series, this ornament depicts the soldiers that guarded the president throughout the Civil War. Despite Lincoln’s insistence that he didn’t need protection, Company K of the 150th Pennsylvania volunteers, known as the Bucktails, held constant vigil over President Lincoln and his family at the Soldiers’ Home. In addition, the 11th New York Cavalry and later the Union Light Guard from Ohio protected the president on his commute to and from the Cottage. This ornament incorporates elements of all three of those troops, and serves as a reminder of the military sacrifice that surrounded Lincoln.
