Jan 21, 2014 Stonewall Jackson Fountain Pen The Historic Pen Company is proud to offer ONE Stainless Steel Fountain Pen as part of our Civil War Collection: produced from "Witness Wood" and "Witness Timber" from historically significant Civil War sites. The General "Stonewall" Stainless Steel - Fountain Pen features the Historic Pen Company's Custom Designed Stainless Steel hardware featuring an HPC - Witness Wood Jewel and a Gold Block German-Made Nib, is made from a piece of the 350 year old tree that General Stonewall Jackson stopped to pray under following the end of his Shenandoah Valley campaign in May and June of 1862. HPC has acquired several historic pieces of the massive oak that stood proudly on the edge of a farm field owned by Warren and Catherine Wilkerson and their family until May 27, 2011 when the diseased-weakened oak was blown down by high winds. HPC acquired these pieces with the express purpose of repurposing this "Witness Wood" into several hand-made heirloom custom and exclusively designed pens for the discerning collectors, Civil War buffs and/or the ancestors of one of those who served with one of the great military figures in US History. General Jackson and 15,000 men encamped between the Middle and South Rivers, gathered for prayer beneath this tree and as history and lore would remember, it became known as the "Stonewall Jackson Prayer Tree"
