This was a time of great turmoil and despair in our young country's history. A time that pitted brother against brother, father against son and neighbor against neighbor....no real distinct lines, just lines based on an individual's beliefs. No other war has created so much interest...go anywhere in the east or south in the summer months and you're probably not far from a battle reenactment site. 150 years later and people are still living the battle! When it's 100 degrees they put on a wool suit and get shot and lay in the sun for hours playing dead....that takes a serious commitment.
Now we have a pen honoring that era and the men that fought for what they believed in, regardless of which side they fought for. These wooden Civil War Pens are beautiful piece of art that you'll both use and/or display for years to come. It's loaded with features you'll love and that will remind you of the past.
Here's a Wooden Civil War Bullet Pen
The clip of this pen features a miniature Model 1861 Springfield Musket. This musket was the mot popular during the war and very good at long range distances because it had rifling, a first for a shoulder fired weapon at that time...unfortunately, most battles were at short range. The history of this rifle is long honored and even today it is the most popular among re-enactors.
The writing tip is a replica of a .44 Caliber 1860 Colt Revolver Bullet. This was the bullet fired from the most popular pistol of the era. This was a 6 shot revolver which meant no reloading after every shot...a big advantage in the time of musket rifles.
The cap is a .58 Caliber Minie` Ball which is the type fired from the 1860 Springfield Musket mentioned above. This was the most popular bullet used and can be found for sale all over the internet and at reenactments. An interesting fact is that the rings on the bullet were for grease and lubrication upon firing.
These pens come in 3 different finishes, Chrome, Gun Metal and Brushed Satin. My favorite finish (especially for a Bullet pen) is the gun metal and if you added a walnut wood barrel, then I think you have the perfect fit. Click this link to learn more about
