Charles Miller - fought with US Army at battle at Wounded Knee - this photographer took images during and after the Battle. Anyone recognize the insignia? He later became a Mason? Could it be from that organization?

    FYI: Most Masonic Jewelry will feature one or more of: a carpenter's square; compasses/dividers; and the letter 'G'. However jewelry for associated organization such as Shriners, York Rite and Scottish Rite will employ additional symbolism. – Pieter Geerkens Jul 21 '18 at 4:17

It's not Masonic - it's the U.S. Army Marksman Button from the 1880's.

    Thank you - I found other marksman insignia - just not this square one! It certainly fits with his service and confirms my id of the photo! – Molly Shannon Jul 22 '18 at 15:38
