Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a coat-size Union “I” Infantry button. The reverse has a standup shank but I can’t make out the backmark. It was recovered near the “Dead Angle” at Cheatham Hill, Georgia.

The site of probably the most intense fighting on the Kennesaw, Georgia line in June 27, 1864 and the first area of what became Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park to be preserved, is now known as Cheatham Hill. In June 1864, the “Dead Angle” was the point chosen by Major General George Thomas to have forces under his command make a frontal assault. The purpose of the assault was to break through and roll up the Confederate defensive line.

This is a very solid button and complete. There has been a light coat of varnish applied for preservation. A nice original piece to add to your collection.
