South Confederate Field Oak Battlefield Tree Paperweight

$50.00Price

This product was made from an oak tree located in the southern part of the Gettysburg Battlefield where Confederate troops formed, advanced and/or held positions on such well known areas such as Devil’s Den, the Slaughter Pen, the Rose Farm and the Wheatfield, particularly on day two.  General Robert E. Lee’s strategy for day two was to attack the right and left flanks of the Union Army under the command of General George Meade.  While Meade held the superior high ground his line was thin and waiting on reinforcements.  No where was the line weaker than the Union’s left flank at the southern end of their line. Confederate General John Bell Hood launched attacks on Little Round Top and Devil’s Den while General Lafayette McLaws attacked the Wheatfield and Peach Orchard to Hood’s left. While the Confederates were able to secure some positions they were unable to break any of the Union lines.   Day two of the Battle of Gettysburg was for the most part, a stalemate.

  • The wood used to create this product is guaranteed to be from an oak removed from the southern end of the Gettysburg Battlefield.  This tree was not a Witness Tree.  It was not standing in July of 1863. 

    All of our products include documentation related to the tree.

  • Available without engraving.
