JUST ADDED ON 5/22 - THE BATTLE OF CEDAR MOUNTAIN - Eagle Coat Button
Out of stock
An eagle coat button (21 mm - no back mark - stand up shank - nice face, but some rim damage) that was recovered at the site of the Battle of Cedar Mountain. Cedar Mountain, which was fought on August 9, 1862 during the Second Manassas Campaign was a fierce fight involving Stonewall Jackson's Corps. The total numbers involved were relatively small (8000 Union soldiers and almost 17,000 Confederate soldiers), but casualties were comparatively high (3,700 combined). A provenance letter will be included.
