Description

This handcrafted Civil War Pen commemorates the American Civil War. The pen is made from a honey locust witness tree at the Battle of Gettysburg. The young tree stood near the site of Pickett’s Charge and the Gettysburg Address. Damaged by a storm in August 2008, a portion was removed and used to create the pens. The surviving portion of the tree still stands at the Soldier’s National Cemetery.
Embedded in the cap of the pen is a piece of a Confederate mini ball found in Appomattox, Virginia. Pickett’s Charge is considered by many as the “high watermark of the Confederacy.” Appomattox Courthouse was the site of Lee’s surrender to Grant’s forces and marked the end of the Confederacy.
The nation needed to rebuild and heal, that process continues today.

This Civil War Pen is made by American Heritage Pens, a Maine based business crafting pens from small pieces of historic wood. They are honored to be the exclusive pen maker for the USS Constitution Museum. Over the years repairs have been made to America’s Ship of State the “USS Constitution”. The museum has provided wood removed during those repairs to be used by American Heritage. No one else has that honor. This is one of many histories available. Each refillable pen includes a history card which explains the importance of the wood used.
