This patent medicine bottle was recovered from excavations at the Quindaro Townsite, 14WY314, in Wyandotte County. The aqua tinted glass bottle has a pontil on the bottom and is embossed on three panels with the words: Osgood's India Cholagogue New York. It was manufactured by C. H. and F. L. Osgood of Norwich, Connecticut as a fever and ague remedy. The brief occupation of the Quindaro Townsite and the rapid sealing of archeological deposits help today's Archeologists to see a snapshot in time.

Date: 1857-1865
