American Heritage Civil War Witness Tree Ballpoint Pen
Commemorating the 150-year history of the U.S. Civil War, these handcrafted pens are made from a Honey Locust tree that was a silent witness at the Battle of Gettysburg. The young tree stood near the site of Pickett's Charge and the 1863 Gettysburg Address. Damaged by a storm in 2008, a portion of the famous tree was removed and used to create the pens. The surviving portion of the tree still stands at Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg. Embedded in the cap of the pen is a piece of an authentic Confederate mini ball found in Appomattox, Virginia. Appomattox Courthouse was the site of Lee's surrender to Grant's forces and marked the end of the Confederacy. Finely crafted in the USA, the Civil War pens have one-of-a-kind wood barrels and caps turned and polished by hand, and equipped with black resin and polished chrome fittings. The fountain pen with steel nib and twist ball pen are engraved with 'Civil War, 1861-1865'. Pay tribute to the 150-year history of the Civil War with the Witness Tree pens.
