Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a Federal 1839 Pattern Brass Belt Plate Buckle dug just south of the Chickamauga Battlefield at Crawfish Springs in Northern Georgia.

The Battle of Chickamauga, fought on September 18 – 20, 1863, between U.S. and Confederate forces in the American Civil War, marked the end of a Union offensive in southeastern Tennessee and northwestern Georgia — the Chickamauga Campaign. It was the first major battle of the war fought in Georgia, the most significant Union defeat in the Western Theater, and involved the second-highest number of casualties after the Battle of Gettysburg.

This excavated Pattern 1839 oval US belt buckle has a smooth brown patina with area of oxidation. The brass face has crisp central “US”. The plate’s reverse retains 98% of the lead fill. Both of the iron attaching buttons remain on the reverse as does the hook. A very nice original Civil War Federal belt buckle. This relic was recovered just south of the Chickamauga Battlefield at Crawfish Springs in Northern Georgia. Measures 3.5” x 2.25”.
