This complete ivory or bone comb was recovered from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield in Linn County during a 1990 survey by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. On October 25, 1864 Union and Confederate forces fought one of the largest cavalry battles in the Civil War at this site. The comb, however, was recovered from near the farmstead on the property and may post date the battle.
