DOG TAGS WERE FIRST CREATED/USED DURING THE CIVIL WAR WHEN THE BODY COUNT WAS PILING UP AND MANY BODIES HAD NO FORM OF IDENTIFICATION ON THEIR PERSON FOR PEOPLE TO LOOK AT. BEFORE THE DOG TAGS WERE ACTUALLY MOLDED (LIKE THE ONE IN THE PICTURE), SOLDIERS IMPROVISED AND WROTE THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION ON A PIECE OF PAPER WHICH WAS PINNED TO THEIR UNIFORM OR ONTO A PERSONAL BELONGING, SUCH AS THEIR KNAPSACKS.
