Rosensteel Family Collection of Gettysburg Battlefield Buttons.

Each button has documented battlefield provenance and a COA from The Horse Soldier in Gettysburg.

Confederate Enlisted Man’s Butternut Shell Jacket Identified to Private William B. Royal, Co. C, 38th North Carolina Vol. Infantry Regt. Wounded at the Wilderness.

This high quality and classic example is made from homespun wool. Linen liner is original and in great condition. There are two belt loops on the side. Jacket retains seven original gold plated North Carolina Militia coat buttons. The buttons are Confederate made, most likely in Richmond VA. by S.A. Myers. They are consistent in finish and patina, and may very well be original to the coat. The truly great thing about this jacket, is that it was acquired from William B. Royal’s direct descendant, Howard ‘Hardy” Lee Royal in 2002 by Will Gorges of New Bern NC. There is a Statement of Provenance letter that comes with the jacket signed by Royal. According to Hardy, the bullet hole in the shoulder is from when his great-great grandfather was wounded at the Battle of The Wilderness on May 5, 1864. Private Royal enlisted on Jan. 16, 1862 and served consistently with the Army of Northern VA. He recovered from his wound and returned to the army in September of 1864. He was captured at the Battle of Hatcher’s Run VA. at the close of the war, and did a short stint at the Point Lookout, MD. prison. The 38th NC was in the thick of the fighting at Gettysburg suffering severe casualties. A copy of Royal’s service records and the regimental history of the 38th NC. are included. I photographed the jacket in some photos with original Confederate accoutrements to show its display potential. Ex. Will Gorges, Ex. Ray Richey Museum, Ex. Horse Soldier.
