OMG I almost died when I found the button. Then my friend , who is now 85 told me that everyone kept their buttons, since there were no Walmarts or other stores, especially where we live. All of the soldiers kept whatever they left the war with. She has a bunch of them . When I moved to the tiny villages I raised my children in there were only 12 people. I love living in the woods. My other friend told me where there are Native American artifacts, but I really don't want to bother them. I went to look, but that was it.
