The SHEAFFER FARMHOUSE – GETTYSBURG, PA is where this amazing Witness Wood® originates. Acquired by History Salvaged from the owner of this former Union Field Hospital that was inundated with causalities and where nearly 3,000 Rebel prisoners who were taken during “Pickett’s Charge” were kept during the July 1-3, 1863 Battle of Gettysburg!
This SHEAFFER FARMHOUSE Witness Wood® is a piece of an original construction Beam that was recently removed during maintenance.
When the wounded began to arrive on the first day of battle, the Sheaffer’s were asked to leave. Immediately thereafter, surgeons began performing amputations on every available surface, forcing the drilling of holes in the floorboards to “wash the blood into the cellar”. The most famous patient at the Sheaffer House Field Hospital was General Daniel Sickles.
This Witness Wood® and the heirlooms it becomes are tributes to those brave men who in many instances gave their all at one of the seminal events in US History.
