This handcrafted 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 Soldiers' 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.
