Pulsipher, Franklin E. (12th VT)

War Medal Dug Up

Washington, July 15 - A laborer on the farm of Dr. Gustavus Brown, a few miles west of the city, unearthed a gold medal about the size of a $10 gold piece. On one side is a vignette of General George B. McClellan, encircled with the letters of his name, and on the other side appears the name of Franklin G. Pulisipher [sic], Company Q, Twelfth Vermont volunteers. It is supposed that the medal was lost during the late war.
