Location Recovered: Near Appomattox, Virginia

Description:On April 9th, 1865, the final charge made by the Army of Northern Virginia came at a place called Gordon's Hill, so named because the Confederate troops there led by Confederate Maj. Gen. John B. Gordon.

This cast I button was recovered there. It is a little bit crusty on the surface, but peeking out underneath is a nice green patina. I am not sure if a bath in lemon juice will remove some of the crustation because I like it as is.
