This is a Confederate cast I button from the American Civil War. It is in great condition considering it was excavated. This brass coat size button was recovered in Fairfax County, Virginia. The area was the site of the Battle of Chantilly, also known as the Battle of Ox Hill. The battle took place on 1 September, 1862 and was considered to be inconclusive. Approximately 6000 Union soldiers under the overall command of Brigadier General Isaac Stevens and Major General Philip Kearny were engaged with 20000 Confederate soldiers under the command of Major General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson and Major General J.E.B. Stuart during the one day battle. The button has a beautiful chocolate patina, and is made of brass. There are no nicks or any other damage with this button. The shank is still present and standing tall. There is no visible makers mark on the back. This is an iconic piece that easily identifies with the American Civil War in excellent condition for an excavated example.
