DOG TAGS: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN MILITARY IDENTIFICATION TAG, 1861 to 2002. 2003 by Paul F. Braddock. This meticulously researched and scholarly written publication brings to us the complete history and explanation of military identification tags. Methods for identification of a soldier could be a piece of paper pinned to his coat or a smoothed coin, small brass disk or silver metal badge stamped or engraved with information that could identify his remains for his family. Until the Federal Government established a system to identify each soldier in 1906, many of the dead would go unidentified, as were 46% of those during the Civil War. The author divides the book into years beginning with the American Civil War, and explains the evolution of the I.D. tag. There are loads of photos throughout the book. Autographed.
