Pickett's Charge Oak Battlefield Tree Magnifying Glass

$45.00Price

This product was made from the wood of an oak tree near where the infantry assault that beacme known as Pickett's Charge formed and advanced on the afternoon of July 3, 1863. The assault was ordered by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Union positions on the last day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Its futility was predicted by the charge's commander, Lt. Gen. James Longstreet, and it was a mistake from which the Southern war effort never fully recovered. The farthest point reached by the attack has been referred to as the high-water mark of the Confederacy.

 

  • Authenticity
    The wood used to create this product is guaranteed to be from pieces legally acquired from a tree that stood in the area where Pickett’s Charge began.

    This tree was not a Witness Tree.  It was not standing during the Battle of Gettysburg.

     

  • Available without engraving.
