This gilt button was excavated during the 1969 Kansas Archeological Training Program, a joint project undertaken by Kansas Historical archeologists and Kansas Anthropological Association volunteers at Fort Zarah. Fort Zarah, located along the Santa Fe trail in Barton County, was active from 1864 to 1869. The button has an alpha shank attachment and is 3/4" in diameter (ligne 30). The "Rich Orange Colour" back mark refers to the color and quality rating of the gilt button by button manufacturers.

Date: 1864-1869
