Colonel Charles Coster's Witness Tree Executive Pen

$95.00Price

This product is made from wood from the mighty oak tree that stood watch over the 134th New York Infantry Regiment commanded by Colonel Charles Coster.  At only 26 years of age he orchestrated a delaying tactic to save the Union’s 11th Corps as they retreated back to Cemetery Hill on the afternoon of July 1, 1863, the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg.  His actions allowed Union troops to secure critical high ground on Culp’s Hill.  Had Coster’s men failed the outcome of the three day battle may have been a victory for the Confederacy.   Soldiers from Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, North Carolina and Georgia fought over this ground that at the time was a brickyard in Gettysburg.

  • Authenticity

    The wood used to create this product is gauranteed to be from pieces legally acquired from the mighty oak tree that witnessed the assaults on the troops defending the Brickyard during the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg.

  • Available without engraving.
