Button, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The Historic Oakwood Cemetery here in Raleigh has a section to honor the Confederate War Dead. I stopped there today to take some pictures. I saw this BUTTON on one of the headstones. The soldier was from Texas (that is what the button says). Here is part of the headstone.

Wonderful image. I bet without the challenge and the button theme you wouldn’t have even taken notice. So cool that this challenge is opening all our eyes to seeing more.

Gosh, I like how you photographed the button. The shiny brass looks so neat against the rough stone. Isn’t that remarkable that someone is tending this grave 150+ years later? Thanks for bringing this to us….
