This bottle was recovered during excavations in 2014 of the Adair cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. The clear glass bottle has a straight brandy or wine finish on the rim. A bottle maker's mark, AR5 within a diamond, is on the bottom. Osawatomie and the Adairs were much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years.

Date: 1855-1912
