This beautiful non-excavated Confederate army officer's coat button boasts an interesting history. It was part of the post-war collection of a Richmond, Virginia, dentist, Dr. Ray Wythe Davis, the son of Dr. Hugh Wythe Davis, former Major and Asst. Surgeon to the 1st Virginia Infantry and Surgeon in charge of the Soldier's Home Hospital in Richmond. In the years following the war Maj. Davis and his young son Ray collected relics. When the son reached manhood he followed his father's footsteps in a medical career. Among his patients were many ex-Confederate soldiers. Between his and his father's battlefield pickups were buttons given to him by his patients. Young Dr. Davis displayed his Confederate plates and buttons in a shadow box in his dental office in Richmond into the 20th century. This button was displayed in the shadow box until recently. Whether from a patient or from Maj. Davis' uniform, we will never know. Backmark is Halfmann & Taylor of Montgomery, Alabama.
