Original Irish Jasper Greens Military Button (1842-1872) by Waterbury Button Co.

Markings on the front of this 19th Century button: 1842-1872, I J G.SAV’H, G’A along with the image of a musical harp with a spread eagle perched on the top of the harp

Markings on the back of the button: Waterbury Button Co. and an emblem that seems to be shaped like a pentagon or star ?

Research of the letters “I J B” indicated that because of a growing population of Irish immigrants in the Savannah, GA area before the Civil War, many of the Irish men formed their own military unit and named their unit for Sgt. William Jasper, who was a hero in the Revolutionary War during a battle in Savannah; The Irish Jasper Greens did fight in the Civil War; probably the unit ceased to exist after the end of the Civil War as possibly evidenced by the 1872 date on the button ?

The button may have belonged to a military band member ?

Quite a rare and unusual button with an interesting history
