Visitors find Civil War button at Little Bighorn
LITTLE BIGHORN, Mont. — A Civil War General Service cuff button was found by visitors Wednesday at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.
Officials say the visitors did the right thing and left the button where they found it, took a photo and reported it to park staff.
The button was properly collected as a field collection and will go into the museum’s collection.
Park officials say that artifacts like this help tell the story of the battle, and if the artifacts found are removed or taken, that part of the story is lost.
