General George B. McClellan, very large campaign medal in white metal, two inches in diameter.
McClellan mounted a presidential campaign, running against Abraham Lincoln who had removed him from the command of the US forces fighting the Civil War. On the reverse of the medal, McClellan lists all of his battles from the war. I can't remember that he won any battles. Nonetheless, his 1864 campaign was not successful and Lincoln won handily. This important, high relief medal is in splendid, nearly uncirculated condition. This and other political medals I have listed are from an important Kentucky collection.
