Today’s animation is a button with the number “43”from the Betsy, a British ship sunk off of Yorktown, Virginia, at the end of the Revolutionary War. The ship had been excavated in the 1980s by the Yorktown Shipwreck Archaeological Project under the direction of then Virginia Department of Historic Resources (VDHR) archaeologist John Broadwater. It is in the archaeological collections maintained by VDHR.  It will be incorporated into an exhibit at VDHR created by VCL intern Ivana Adzic.
