Overview

Shown are LARGE images and information on 25 military uniform buttons. These buttons are on display at the Bois Blanc Island Historical Society Museum. One is very rare.

Most of Bois Blanc Island once was used as a military reservation for the use of the troops at Fort Mackinac. The soldiers had to row or walk on ice to get back and forth from Bois Blanc Island. The soldiers sent to Bois Blanc toiled to obtain wood for lumber and fuel, Gathered limestone to make quicklime, and boiled sap to make maple sugar. Buttons were lost as they toiled. The 25 buttons shown represent only some of the many styles used around the time of the War of 1812.
