Brass button with US with no periods.

I found a large US brass button that has no period after the U or the S. It has no back on it but a tab that looks as though it hooked onto something. Any ideas about it. I found it near what was a field hospital near a civil war battle site.

No picket wire that's not my button. Mine is rounded on the edge and has what appears to be a wedge shaped grommet on one side the other appears to be broken off. It is approx. the size of a half dollar.

So is that a US calvary item? Also were they made available for civilians?
The following link says that the army started selling surplus supplies including horse tack shortly after the Civil War. It is an interesting article.

I have found one of these at a turn of the 20th century house site in East Texas. I did not realize "Army surplus" was around that early. Very interesting article. Thanks for posting the link.
