Product Description

These are three Union buttons. Two are typical Eagle jacket buttons and the smaller one is either a kepi or vest Eagle button. This small button appears to be an officers Staff Button, being that the eagle is surrounded by stars. What is truly unique about this button is that it still has the original thread remaining on the shank. These buttons were recovered at the Bentonville, North Carolina Battlefield. The Battle of Bentonville, fought March 19-21, 1865, was the last full-scale action of the Civil War in which a Confederate army was able to mount a tactical offensive. This major battle, the largest ever fought in North Carolina, was the only significant attempt to defeat the large Union army of Gen. William T. Sherman during its march through the Carolinas in the spring of 1865. All three buttons have their shanks remaining as well as backmarks, but they are difficult to read. Two of the buttons are fine; the other is in poor condition as can be seen in the photographs. The glass top display case is included.
