JUST ADDED ON 2/27 - GETTYSBURG RETREAT / THE BATTLE OF MONTEREY PASS - Confederate Block "I" Coat Button - Face Only
Out of stock
The face of a Confederate block "I" infantry coat button (23 mm) that was recovered at the site of the Battle of Monterey Pass in the 1990s. It is difficult to get any artifacts from Monterey Pass, let alone Confederate buttons - although it is just the face, the patina is really pleasing. The Battle of Monterey Pass was fought on July 4th & 5th, 1863, during the Army of Northern Virginia's retreat from Gettysburg. It was a short but intense fight which ultimately cost the Confederates over a thousand prisoners and part of their wagon train. A provenance letter will be included.
