How many men has this simple yet rare intact flag finial led into battle? That is exactly what I wonder as I hold it in my hands. The carnage it has seen. Always out in the front of the charging troops, if the bearer falls another picks it up to carry proudly forward. However, this time when it fell it broke off the flag staff, only to lay hidden in the ground for over 100 years. This particular flag finial led the way for the United States Union Cavalry at the battle of Brandy Station. Excavated with land owners permission in the 1970's while the property was still privately owned, this piece has never yet been cleaned and has the remainder of the original wood staff still inside. A true piece of history that embodies courage and endurance.

Leather neck stocks were part of the uniforms worn by both the U.S and British troops from The Revolutionary War to the War of 1812. Leatherneck is a military slang term for a member of the United States Marine Corps, or of the British Royal Marines. It is generally believed to originate in the wearing of a leather "stock" or collar around the neck, which kept the posture erect.
Rarely are these clasps ever excavated.
