A Close-Up of the Buttons on a Bronze Sculpture of a Soldier

This bronze sculpture, at Corinth Contraband Camp, is known as “USCT” (an acronym for United States Colored Troops). The bronze figures in the park all depict some facet of daily life, from when the camp was active. This photograph provides a close-up of the buttons on the soldiers coat, and the buckle of his bandolier bag. The buckle is embossed with an eagle clutching the arrows of war in one talon, and the olive branch of peace in the other.
