SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y.  In 1863, the first items from Civil War
battlefields where New Yorkers were fighting and dying started to
arrive at the newly created Bureau of Military Statistics in Albany.
Among them were a uniform button and the bullet that struck it at the
Battle of Cedar Mountain in Virginia.

Thousands of artifacts and 150 years later, more than 100 of those
relics  including the damaged button and bullet  are being displayed
in a new exhibit at the New York State Military Museum as part of the
Empire State's commemoration of the war's sesquicentennial.
