White Oak (SJPT) Civil War Bullet Pen

These pens are hand made with the wood from the "Stonewall" Jackson Prayer Tree.

Included with each pen will be an authentic civil war bullet, similar to the ones in the photos. None of the bullets have been fired, most were dropped or lost by the solders. Most of my bullets were found/dug in the vicinity of Chancellorsville and Wilderness Battlefields near Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Each pen will have small variations in the wood grain and color. Each piece of wood is selected to show the wood of the "Stonewall" Jackson Prayer Tree at it's best. The pens have a Gun Metal finish and each pen includes a 4 page information pamphlet.

The pen: Inspired by the era when correspondence was an art form and craftsmanship was honored. From the remarkably detailed Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket clip to the replica 58 Caliber Minie' Ball on the cap and 44 Colt Army Bullet on the end, this pen is ready to help you create your own chapter of history. It's the perfect gift for Civil War enthusiasts, gun aficionados, history buffs, outdoors men and more.

The Tree: During the civil war, General “Stonewall” Jackson stopped to pray under this massive white oak tree following the end of his Shenandoah Valley campaign in May and June of 1862. Jackson and his men, encamped between the Middle and South Rivers, also gathered for prayer beneath this tree, so in Shenandoah Valley lore, it became known as the “Stonewall Jackson Prayer Tree.”

Over time this 350 year-old tree stood proudly on the edge of a farm field (located near Mt. Meridian in Augusta County, Grottoes, Virginia) until May 27, 2011, when the diseased-weakened oak was blown down by high winds.

In order to preserve the authenticity of items made from this tree, a card will be included with each item designating that the item is made from the wood of the "Stonewall" Jackson Prayer Tree and includes a brief history of the tree.
