Here is some information on this rare ribbon that I found on-line. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confederate_Survivors_Association

"In December 1898 after the Spanish–American War, President William McKinley toured the South by train to celebrate the victory over Spain and to thank the citizens for their support of the war effort. During a whistle stop in Macon, Georgia, the 400 members of the Bibb County CSA camp warmly greeted the President, and one veteran presented him with a Confederate badge. McKinley may have been the first U.S. President to wear such an emblem in public."

The ribbon measures 9 inches long.  It was scanned in a mylar holder, it has not been laminated.  There is a two inch separation on the ribbon which runs from the beginning of the written material to the bottom of the ribbon on the right hand side.  It has been mended on the back with an archival acid free tape.
