In many ways, the Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. The Gettysburg Pistol Wood Display Plaque pays homage to this battle, while also displaying a classic Confederate revolver in impressive detail for all to see. Perhaps one of the most pivotal moments during the course of the 3-day battle was Picketts Charge, a disastrous attempt that was led by Lieutenant General James Longstreet, as well as Major General George Pickett, for whom the charge is named. The charge met with catastrophic failure and resulted in the advancing infantry being forced to retreat, suffering around fifty percent of their numbers as casualties. The pistol depicted on this plaque is a full-size, non-firing replica that is based on the traditional six-shot cap and ball revolvers that were popular with Confederate troops and would have likely been used during the Battle of Gettysburg. This one is relatively simple in its look, possessing a wood grip and a plain metal finish, which brings it closer to the typical field models you would see general and soldiers using in the heat of battle. The pistol is displayed on an attractive, light-hued hardwood plaque and is held in place by two brass bullet hangers. Underneath the pistol is a print that depicts Picketts Charge against the Union forces. Also featured on the plaque is an Army Cavalry cap badge, which consists of two crossed sabers, as well as a brass name plate that gives a bit more detailed information about the pistol. The plaque measures approximately 18 inches long and 7 inches tall. Hung on a wall or set on a shelf, this Gettysburg Pistol Wood Display Plaque would make for a great piece of history to have in your home, or a perfect gift to give to those who still love the Civil War era and all that goes with it.
