Never seen an eagle button like this one...

I looked all over online with no luck ID'ing the maker, age/era, type of button. Has anyone seen this or can identify it? Thanks in advance!

It would be good to get some context to the location where it was found. Was there ever a military camp around there? Battle?
Excellent point! Southeastern VA, not far from Yorktown. The area saw troop movements and some battle in all three major Continental United States wars. There were American encampments in the immediate area where this button was found in both the War of 1812 and Civil War (Confederate and Union). So the militia makes a lot of sense to me. It was found right near where an old Colonial house stood before being demolished and farm fields took its place.
