Hello Tyler,
              The I stands for Infantry. Is this a Union Button that You have?...Rob

A lot of buttons denoted branch of service. I stood for Infantry, a Large A on a button was artillery, and of course the C for Calvary. As I understand it the Rebs had more of the letter buttons.

I found a small Union button some time ago and the shield had a "D" on it. It was near a Fort in southern Oklahoma that had been occupied by both Union and Confederate troops at different times. Being an old Infantryman from Co.C 4th/31st Infantry regiment, I had always assumed it stood for the designated company.  I learn something new every day !
