When the Libyans excavated the original grave site in 2006, they reported they found "bones and buttons."

The buttons could help identify the officers as separate from the other men.

According to US Navy uniform regulations established in 1804, the officer's uniform style was established.

These buttons, while manufactured at different locations by different companies, all seem to incorporate certain attributes, including the eagle and the fowled anchor.
