Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a super cool original button from Louisiana. This is the button listed as LA20 in Albert's button book and as LA272A2 in Tice's button book. This is the coat button that was designed for the Batallon D'Artillerie D'Orleans (New Orleans Battalion of Artillery). In Tice's button book, he tells how they were organized in 1830 and was very popular with Creoles because the surnames of the members all carried French or Spanish names. In 1860, the organization was part of the First Division of Louisiana Militia with Major General John L. Lewis commanding. They became Companies A,B,C, and D, of the 23rd (Later 22nd) Louisiana Infantry Regiment in 1862. The Confederate command initially assigned to defend Fort Livingston, Louisiana. When the Confederates surrendered New Orleans in 1862, companies derived from the New Orleans Battalion of Artillery disbanded, not wanting to serve outside of their native state. This 22mm coat button has the crossed cannon in the center with the flaming ordnance bomb above. around the cannons it proudly reads "BATALLON D'ARTILLERIE D'ORLEANS". The face has a gorgeous honey color patina. The button was made without gilding. It has the unmarked brass back with the original shank intact as well. This is an exceptionally beautiful and exceptionally scarce Louisiana button.
