EXCAVATED CONFEDERATE "I" INFANTRY COAT BUTTON FROM THE FRED WISE COLLECTION AND ON DISPLAY AT THE CROOKED CREEK MUSEUM
Original Civil War Excavated Cast "I" Infantry Coat Button from the Fred Wise Collection and on display for many years at the Crooked Creek Museum. Has a really nice overall dark patina with a slight shade of green. The reverse is in great shape with a strong shank. Please see all photos and call or write for payment options.
The Crooked Creek Museum was located on a battle site where Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and Union Colonel Abel Streight fought for several hours at Crooked Creek in Vinemont, AL, then went on to engage in the battles of Hog Mountain and Day's Gap in April 1863. Fred Wise was the owner and Curator since the 90's. I will be listing more relics from the museum. Please check back.
