Many noteworthy battles were fought during the American Civil War, but none quite as memorable as the Battle of Gettysburg. The Gettysburg Pistol Boxed Set is a commemorative collectible that remembers this battle and all who fought in it. Despite only lasting three days, the Battle of Gettysburg experienced the largest number of casualties of any battle in the American Civil War, and is widely regarded as the turning point in the war. It was the moment when General Lees army was repulsed, having failed at their second advance into the northern Union territories, leaving battles to rage in the south. Included in this set is a replica 1860 Army Percussion Revolver, which was favored and used by soldiers in both the Union and the Confederacy. The revolver features a wood grip and a blued barrel, as well as an eye-catching brass frame. The pistol is set into a custom-shaped foam mold, which features a soft, almost velvet-like feel. Also adorning the soft foam lining is a cavalry insignia and a Union States cap badge, both possessing a rich, gold-like finish and hue. All this is set within a hardwood display box, which features a colorized print of General Picketts Charge at Cemetery Ridge, where the Confederate soldiers charged the center of the Union lines. The box measures approximately 14.5 inches long, 7.25 inches wide, and 2.5 inches tall. President Lincoln later commemorated the Battle of Gettysburg with the dedication of their cemetery, when he gave his famous Gettysburg Address, and now you can do the same by including this Gettysburg Pistol Boxed Set into your own collection for display and decoration.
