The model files can be downloaded and viewed with free downloadable programs such as Adobe Reader, Meshlab, and 3D-Tools. The models are scaled in centimeters/millimeters. See the information below the file downloads for how to view the 3D models

3D Buckle

This is one of several kinds of buckles we have recovered from the prisoner encampment; buckle types include those used on knapsacks, belts, and suspenders. Many are of civilian origin, while others were produced for military use.

3D Infantry Button

We have recovered numerous buttons from the site; most are the “general service” buttons which were for enlisted men, while others, such as this one, were produced for officers, in this case an officer of infantry.
