JUST ADDED ON 4/8 - THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM / DUNKER CHURCH - Pewter Button Fragments
Five pieces of pewter flat/coin buttons (all about 1 inch diameter) that were recovered close to the Dunker Church at Antietam in the 1960s. The Dunker Church is, perhaps, the most famous building on the Antietam battlefield and was at the heart of the morning's fight. I acquired these artifacts more than a decade ago, but it has been stored away until "rediscovered" last summer. A provenance letter will be included.
