Civil War Calling Cards

I’m calling these Civil War calling cards.  They belonged to men who served in the war with Thomas Cation Duncan in the Wisconsin 1st Cavalry.  I’m not positive that’s the proper name for these, so if you know a better name, let me know.
One is for W. H. Tripp of Milan, Missouri and the other for S. W. Harrington of Hull, Iowa.

    • I have no idea. I just know T.C. Duncan had these from some of the men in his cavalry unit. And we don’t have any of T.C.’s cards. Many times troops stayed with local residents – maybe they used the cards to mark those times.
