My Grandmother's Grandfather gave her this brooch. A Northerner from Illinois, he fought in the Civil War on Tennessee battlegrounds. As it wasn't given to his wife nor his daughter, I believe he held onto it with some reservation before he finally gave it away before his death. I have never seen anything like this... Building in the background is more castle or fortress like with a brick fortress wall around. Though it has been boxed up for more than 90 years, it looks to have been smoothed down by touch from another time... Any thoughts anyone?
