Product Description

This is another piece being offered, it is a Confederate Cavalry rosette from a horse bridle. It has a diameter of 1 ¾” with a brass front and lead back. Being the attachment hooks were metal, they are long gone. In “Horse Equipment of the Civil War Era” by Howard Crouch, he has two of these rosettes pictured and feels that since they are not listed in the regulations, they may be Confederate (see pictures). It was recovered years ago at the Shiloh Battlefield.

The Battle of Shiloh, also known as the Battle of Pittsburg Landing, was fought April 6 - 7, 1862, in southwestern Tennessee. A Union army under Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant had moved via the Tennessee River deep into Tennessee and was encamped principally at Pittsburg Landing on the west bank of the river, where Confederate forces under Generals Albert Sidney Johnston and P. G. T. Beauregard launched a surprise attack on Grant's army. The Confederates achieved considerable success on the first day but were ultimately defeated on the second day.

This unique piece is in very nice condition and solid. There are a couple blemishes on the face from the iron hooks but displays very nicely. It would make a great addition to any collection. It comes in the glass top display case pictured.
