WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED OLD REBELLION WAR RELICS
This is a very good dug, CS local Artillery button, two piece, convex. Wide border with the roman 'A' on a plain field. This one was found at or near Benner's Hill in Gettysburg. Most likely dropped along the way to benner's hill, before the attach on Culps Hill. Found in 1981 by a local digger, this button is in good shape considering the time in the ground. Has the brass face and the copper back and shank, which is still attached to the back. This is a wartime local made by and backmarked "E. M. Lewis & Co./Richmond VA." rmdc(23mm).
Benners Hill was occupied by a battery of John Lattimer's CS Artillery that put fire on Culps Hill and East Cemetary Hill. They were shortly thereafter silenced, with Lattimer being Mortally wounded.
