This was the personal folding mirror of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw from the 54th Massachusetts Infantry (Glory). It was part of his personal belongings left in his tent after the attack on Battery Wagner. The number "2" is when he was with the 2nd Massachusetts Infantry. More details are in my recent book "The Civil War Soldier - His Personal Items". R. Jones collection.
