These two rings, possibly for a wagon, were recovered during the 1990 survey and excavation at the Mine Creek Battlefield by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists and crew. Rings were used for trees, either single or double, for levelers or for bars. These have been cleaned by electrolysis, which passes an electrical current through a liquid solution to separate the rust from the artifact. The site was the location where on October 25, 1864 Union and Confederate forces fought one of the largest cavalry battles in the Civil War.

Date: 1864
