Union Infantry "I" Button, recovered at Gettysburg (SOLD)


Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is a Union Infantry “I” coat size button. It is complete and even has the shank remaining on the back, although it is bent over. This button was recovered a few years back in Gettysburg, along Mummasburg Road – the site of the first days fighting.

The First Day of the Battle of Gettysburg took place on July 1st, 1863, and began as an engagement between isolated units of the Army of Northern Virginia under Confederate General Robert E. Lee and the Army of the Potomac under Union Maj. Gen. George G. Meade. It soon escalated into a major battle which culminated in the outnumbered and defeated Union forces retreating to the high ground south of Gettysburg.

This button is unique in that it is just as it was recovered, complete with dirt still remaining on the front and back. A slight push on the front doesn’t detract at all from this piece. It comes in the glass top display case pictured. (SOLD)
