Second Corps of Cadets Cap Badge

The latest addition to the collection is a 19th century cap badge from the Second Corps of Cadets of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. They served in the city of Salem from 1785 until 1892 after the armory fire. Upon quick look it is believed that the badge dates to the Spanish American War period. Any more information will be posted in a further post.
