JUST ADDED ON 9/12 - THE BATTLE OF TREVILIAN STATION - Flower Cuff Button
A cuff-sized flower button (15 mm - shank is present but is a little bent) found on the Trevilian Station battlefield. Flower buttons are typically associated with Confederate use. The Battle of Trevilian Station, fought on June 11-12, 1864 as a part of Ulysses S. Grant's Overland Campaign, was the bloodiest and largest all cavalry battle of the war. Over 15,000 cavalrymen fought in the battle - 2,300 became casualties - which was ultimately a victory for the Confederates after seven Union assaults were repulsed. A provenance letter will be included.
