Looks like...
Either

Polygonia comma - Eastern Comma - Hodges#4421

or

Polygonia interrogationis - Question Mark - Hodges#4420

The silvery mark on the hind underwing looks like it has a dot disconnected from the curve, indicating the latter.

 
Awesome
Didn't even notice the little question mark before! That's cool! Thank you so much.
