Product Details

Two flat or coin buttons (One is 19 mm and the other is 18 mm - shanks present, but bent - one with partially readable back mark) that were recovered near the Dunker Church on the Antietam Battlefield in the late 1960s. This type of button is often associated with Confederate use. They were recovered on a farm (private property at the time) that sat immediately behind the Dunker Church (the land bordered the small plot that the church sits on). The Dunker Church is the most famous building on the Antietam Battlefield. It was a key focal point for Union attacks during the morning of the battle and the fighting swirled around it. Later, it became a hospital. A provenance letter will be included.
