Knights of Pythias Belt Buckle from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield Site, 14LN337

Knights of Pythias Belt Buckle from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield Site, 14LN337
Date: 1864
This belt buckle was recovered from the Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield site in Linn County, where, on October 25, 1864, Union and Confederate forces fought one of the largest cavalry battles in the Civil War. It is difficult to say if the buckle came from battle, as it is in such good condition, but it was buried and not a surface find, which argues for the belt buckle dating to the battle. The brass buckle depicts a left facing helmeted knight. The Knights of Pythias were the first American fraternal order chartered by an Act of Congress (1864).
