$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 532-84

Recovered in the woods at the Rose Farm. This historic farm owned by George and Dorothy Rose is located south of Gettysburg on the eastern side of the Emmitsburg Road. This farm was at the center of some of the fiercest fighting on the second day of battle. The Confederate brigades of Semmes and Kershaw fought here. Used as a Confederate Field Hospital, it is estimated that over 1,000 soldiers were buried here.

This excavated Confederate Infantry Local Button comes with a small section of the soldier’s uniform. Shank has broken off and is located inside the button. Nice olive patina.

Found by local Gettysburg resident John Cullison, who excavated relics on the field from 1935-1959. Cullison sold his collection to the famed Gettysburg Rosensteel family, who held the primary collection of Gettysburg artifacts.
