TWO PATRIOTS IN MILLERSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA PHOTOGRAPHED BY EX PITTSBURGH STEELERS COACH CHUCK NOLL

Cabinet Card’s often present more questions than answers; this is one of those images. The Cabinet Card features two men in uniform, wearing sashes that look like a portion of the American flag. Both men are wearing caps that display a number. Each man is also wearing a badge and ribbons on their jacket. One of the ribbons may say Washington Campaign and have Millersburg written on the bottom line, but this is just a hypothesis. Hopefully, a visitor to this site will share a more informed opinion about what organization these men may be representing. Are they Firemen, Railroad Workers, Military Veterans, Fraternal Organization Members, or some other specific occupational or service group? The photographer is Charles W. Noll. If his nickname was Chuck, than he is the unofficial namesake of the former football coach, Chuck Noll of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The photographer is listed in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania directories of 1902 and 1904.

    PATRIOTIC ORDER SONS OF AMERICA
    (P.O.S. of A.)

    The Order adopted a sash, worn from the right shoulder to the left hip, bearing the blue canton and white stars, and red and white stripes, of “Old Glory” as the official regalia for P.O.S. of A. brothers. Jewels of office, consisting of red, white and blue ribbons and silver emblematic devices, were adopted for the Camp’s officers to wear on their sash.
