It's printed, so it's media, right?

I was going through some stuff at my parent's house and found a small, old case in a drawer. I opened it up and found an ACW reunion ribbon, and some old flowers wrapped in red, white and blue ribbon. Cpl. William S. Miller was my mom's great grandfather, who served with Co. D of the 79th PA. from 1861 till mustered out at the end of the war. I imagine this ribbon is from the early 1900s. My grandfather told me that, when he was a kid, his grandfather (Cpl. Miller) used to take him to civil war reunions. A neat little memento that has been passed down through the family.
