    Very cool buckle and picture. I love G.A.R. relics. I found a watch fob in the yard of a Civil War veteran about 10 years ago. It was from the 1891 G.A.R national encampment in Detroit Aug. 3-8. I bet a lot of the men in that picture were at that encampment.
    Thank's for sharing.

    It is really cool to imagine that that buckle probably did belong to one of those ornery looking fellas.
    Thanks for sharing!
