This wood came from an Oak tree which witnessed the Gettysburg Battle, one of the most important battles if the Civil War. On July 2nd, 1863, this oak tree watched over General Longstreet's men as the prepared for an assault on the Peach Orchard, Round Top, and the Wheatfield.
In 2002, this witness oak tree was claimed by a storm and subsequently was removed from the battlefield by a company hired by the United States Park Service. At the time of its falling, based on the tree's growth rings, it was estimated this oak tree was at least 180 years old. This oak tree was located in the south western edge of the battlefield. Once removed, a Park Service employee legally acquired wood from this tree in an attempt to preserve a piece of history.
