    Navy Button in Kentucky

    I found this button at my favorite hunting place where I have found a lot of civil war Era relics. At a loss for why a Navy Button is there though

    A former owner might have served in the Navy and brought it back, later lost. Just an idea.

    It's possible. This house has also given up a Louisiana state seal confederate button.

    I'm thinking the owner has served seems very possible.
