Hi, this is Jennifer again.
These are not actually from the civil war era, these are from 22 and 25 years later, during some annual reunions.
The Kansas Department of the Grand Army of the Republic initially organized December 7, 1866 for the purpose of furthering the interests and preserving the memory of veteran Union soldiers in Kansas. It held annual encampments in various towns in Kansas.
Many other states held these as well.
The delegate badges typically resell in the range of $30-$50 as collectibles.
Please let me know if I can help further.
