Recovered near Willoughby Run, from the Lawrence “Larry” Eckert / Rosensteel family collection.

John H. Rosensteel lived through the three days of fighting in Gettysburg. John was the founder of the well-known Rosensteel Collection; his nephew George, an avid relic collector himself, later built his own National Museum (which included the Electric Map) in Gettysburg. The Rosensteel relic collection was later passed down to their daughter, Angela, who in 1941 married Larry Eckert. Eckert worked in his father-in-law's museum and operated the famed Electric Map until the property was sold to the U.S. government in 1972.

Nice state button complete with shank, plain tin back. Purchased by The Horse Soldier at the Redding Auction sale for the Eckert family, May 9 – 10, 2008. This button was Lot number 164 in the auction listing.  [ws] [ph:L]
