Civil War identification pin, 1.5 in. dia., silver, jeweler-made. Center with counted cavalryman brandishing a saber, surrounded by text reading, "E. Granerman / Co. K 21st N.Y. Cav."

The unit roster for the 21st New York Cavalry contains no listing for "E. Granerman," although an Edward Groman (variably spelled "Gemmerman") did enlist on September 29, 1863 at the age of 16 in Troy, NY. Private Groman mustered into Co. K, 21st New York Cavalry, and his company was promptly dispatched to Washington, DC and attached to the Army of West Virginia. After three years of service, Groman was appointed bugler and was transferred to Co. E on September 9, 1865. He mustered out on July 5, 1866 at Denver, Colorado Territory.
