GAR Buttons and Silver Gelatin Photograph of the 46th GAR Regiment Table, Ca 1910

Twelve .25 in. brass GAR coat buttons mounted on board. On the reverse of the mounted board are penciled inscriptions presumably describing the makers’ marks on the reverse of the buttons, which read Horstmann Bros. Co., Philadelphia; Covile(?) Mfg. Co. Waterbury; and Goodwins Pat. July 27, 1875.

Eleven .75 in. GAR brass coat buttons.  On the reverse of the mounted board are penciled inscriptions presumably describing the makers’ marks on the reverse of the buttons, which read Pettibone Mfg Co. Cincinnati.

Seven .25 in. silver GAR buttons with the seal of the organization marked on the reverse by Waterbury Cos.

Mounted silver gelatin photograph measuring 8.75 x 6.5 in. and 12 x 10 in with its mount. In the image, a line of women are seated at a table with a group of men behind them with flanked flags and a union shield on the wall. One banner near the right margin of the photograph gives information on the Headquarters of the Ladies GAR. In the distance is a decorated GAR member with a hat, ribbon, and several pins on his chest. Behind the GAR member is a banner reading 46th Regt. GAR Meets at GAR Hall Tues. at 1 pm. sharp. On the reverse of the photograph, an inscription reads May 18, 1910. Presumably the date of the photograph.
