Mississippi uniform buttons


Apparently from a solider in I Company, which was the letter name of the 13th’s Minutemen of Attala, though I have no idea whether the buttons are from one of them.

UPDATE:  Winston Cameron of Winchester, Virginia, a descendant of Captain Hugh Cameron and First Lieutenant John Cameron, both of the Alamutcha Infantry, thinks the I on the buttons more likely stood for Infantry.

    The “I” does stand for infantry. There are also Mississippi buttons with “A” and “C” on them for artillery and cavalry, respectively. I’m a Civil War relic hunter, but I’ve never found a Mississippi button. Those are very rare and very beautiful pieces to have in a collection.
