2nd Maryland Infantry Identified Puppy Paw Style US Buckle on Partial Belt
Click on an image to enlarge
What a cool piece! This is an original fragment of the white buff leather belt with the classic model 1839 "US" belt plate. What makes this one neat is that it is identified to the 2nd Maryland Infantry Regiment. It still has approximately 8 1/4th inches of the white buff leather belt fragment. Still attached to the belt, it has the classic die-struck brass face "US" belt plate having round "Puppy Paw" studs. On the back of the buckle lead it has the stamp "W.M. Mayer, 1861" but in my opinion, this stamp isn't as old as the buckle itself. One thing that makes this one special is that the back of the belt features stenciled identification of "H. Stewart / 2nd MD. Inf." A search through the records of the 2nd Maryland Infantry shows that there are 4 enlistees matching these initials who served in the 2nd Maryland Infantry or the 2nd Maryland Eastern Shore Infantry. So it could be any of the four men. One of the men is Harry H. Stewart, who was killed in action at Antietam.
