This is a non-dug coat size Mississippi local button.

It has an old tag with period ink that states: Mississippi

Button, Rebel, brought home by Lieut. Sargent, 13th Me

Regt. From N. Orleans. A brief check of the data base lists

William Henry Sargent, 27 years old, School teacher from

Portland Maine. Enlisted Dec 12, 1861 into Co. G  13th Me 

Vols. Promoted to 2nd Lieut in 1862 and resigned in 1864.

He certainly brought this home from a captured Miss

soldier. The paper has cracked with age but is complete. 

A Confederate local button with a really neat history...
