The 3 generals are Nathaniel Banks, Franz Sigel, and George McClellan; we would guess this dates from fairly early in the war, but after Sigel's promotion to Major General in 1862. with--a similar portrait of General Ambrose Burnside in a similar but slightly larger button, not strung together with the others.Price Realized (with Buyer's Premium) $250
