Epaulettes worn by Henry H. Sibley

United States Army officer’s epaulettes worn by Brigadier General Henry H. Sibley during the Civil War and U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.  Each consists of a bullion-covered board strap with a brass General Staff button on the end.  On the opposite end, within a brass crescent, is a silver bullion six-pointed star.  A row of spiral gold bullion fringe hangs from the crescent. The epaulettes were made by Horstmann and Company in New York.
