Excavated Civil War Confederate State Uniform Buttons
Civil War Louisiana Mother Pelican & Her Young State Seal
Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original excavated Civil War coat size uniform button for the state of Louisiana. The front of the button has the mother pelican turned to the side and she is feeding her young in the nest below. There is a slight push the button's face but it displays quite well. This is the pattern listed as figure LA7 in Albert's button book and as LA223a1 in Tice's book. It has the correct Civil War era maker's mark on the back of "HORSTMANN & ALLIEN" with the rays coming from the center. You can still see traces of the rays around the shank of the button. This is a beautiful and classic style of Civil War Louisiana coat button.
