9512 - NAPOLEONIC WAR 13TH LIGHT DRAGOONS, BRITISH, WATERLOO REGIMENT, CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE
, 19mm, small coat issue, no shank, clear "13 LD" on domed face. The 13th Light Dragoons was a cavalry regiment of the British Army whose battle honors include Waterloo and The Charge of the Light Brigade later in the 19th Century. Initially the brigade saw little action at Waterloo, however, when the French pushed forward with two columns of cavalry and infantry to force the British position, the cavalry brigade received orders to charge. The enemy broke and was pursued until other French cavalry on the left flank were detected. The brigade then retired behind the infantry until Lord Uxbridge and Lord Hill ordered the 13th forward again; this time against a square of French infantry. The enemy was completely routed, and dispersed. The late afternoon brought renewed French attacks with infantry and cavalry in a last effort to win the day. The brigade, along with Major-General Dornberg's 3rd Cavalry Brigade on the left, attacked a heavy column of French infantry. An officer of the 13th wrote: Our last and most brilliant charge, was at the moment that Lord Hill, perceiving the movement of the Prussian army, and finding the French Imperial Guard on the point of forcing a part of the British position, cried out, - "Drive them back, 13th!" such an order from such a man, could not be misconstrued, and it was paunctually obeyed. Although sustaining heavy fire, the attack was again successful and the enemy routed. In total the 13th Light Dragoons at Waterloo suffered 99 casualties with 113 horses lost. A button period to the Napoleonic War. Nice patina to surfaces........................................................

9513 - BRITISH LOYALIST/CIVIL SERVANTS BUTTON, FORT CONDE, MOBILE, AL, 21mm brass, no shank, three reclining lions under a crown, legend surrounding devices indistinct, but devises strong.

The British renamed the post Fort Charlotte and maintained a garrison here throughout the American Revolution. The Spanish under Galvez defeated the British in 1780 and controlled the Fort until 1813 when the American took control under General Wilkinson. The style of this button dates to the post Revolutionary period. An interesting Mobile find....................................................$75.00

US BUTTONS 1792 - WAR OF 1812

902A - 93RD REGIMENT OF FOOT, BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS, New Item Pewter enlistedman's button, 22mm, no shank, Crown over large "93". On 28 December 1814, the British advanced up the left bank of the Mississippi River towards New Orleans. The 93rd Highlanders came under fire 750 yards from Andrew Jackson's parapet, from the defenders and from a schooner on the river. The men laid for five hours in the rain, sleet and bombardment until the British pulled back. On 1 January 1815, the British attempted a reconnaissance in force during which torrential rain bogs down the advance of the artillery and the troops. The left flank of the Americans was routed, but this went unperceived by British until it was too late in the day to take advantage. The final British assault took place on 8 January. The British had some early success, but mistakes and bad luck accumulated. The American position on the right bank of river was overrun and captured while on the left bank, the American advance redoubt was taken by detachment of light infantry companies including that of the 93rd. Soon, the British right flank assault faltered. The 93rd aborted support of the captured redoubt and crossed the field to support the faltering right flank, but is halted 100 yards from the parapet. When Lt. Col. Dale was killed, there were no orders to either advance or withdraw so that the 93rd stood fast ad was mown down. General Edward Pakenham was also killed. Orders were finally received and, after futile attempt to advance, the 93rd withdrew from the field. The "immense bravery" shown by the 93rd in this advance was noted by the American Paul Wellman, General Jackson's biographer: To the very edge of the canal before the rampart the few that were left of the kilted regiment marched, then halted there. The men who had been detailed to bring scaling ladders and fascines had failed to come up. Unable to go forward, too proud to retreat, although the regiment behind them  had all fallen back. At length a mere handful of what had been the magnificent regiment slowly retired, still in unbroken order, still turning to face the foe. From the ramparts the Americans cheered them wildly. All rifle fire ceased - The Thin Red Line, Regimental Journal, January 1968 British losses were 2,000 and the 93rd contributed 300 to 550 to the number of killed, wounded and captured. On 18 - 30 January, the British withdraw downriver to their ships to embark. The British captured Ft. Bowyer outside Mobile, Alabama on 11 February. The 93rd and others landed on Dauphin Island outside Mobile Bay. Finally, on 13 February, a Sloop-of-War brought news of preliminaries of peace at Ghent and women and children of the 93rd were allowed ashore. This button was excavated at Dauphin Isle, AL. Some erosion to top edge, clear crown and very sharp 93. A duplicate from my collection, very rare....................................................................$275.00
