    A Virginia Button From Stonewall Jackson's Uniform

    STONEWALL JACKSON'S VIRGINIA BUTTON HATPIN - 5.5" long, made from a three-piece state seal button having the pre-war backmark of the well-known Richmond firm Mitchell & Tyler. The shank of this button was removed with a long steel pin being soldered in its place. An accompanying typed card shows light aging and states that the button is "...from the Richard D. Steuart Collection...from the uniform coat of 'Stonewall Jackson'." The button has excellent old toning and is free of pushes or dents. Its former owner, Richard D. Steuart of Baltimore, was a highly regarded author and collector of Confederate memorabilia. Stonewall Jackson's uniform buttons were given away by his family after his funeral in 1863.

    Provenance:The William Turner Collection, Author of Even More Confederate Faces.
