Here is an early souvenir walking cane made of wood taken from the famous Gettysburg battlefield area of Pickett’s Charge. The slender wooden cane is straight and measures 35" long with a handle diameter of about 1" which tapers down at the tip point. The handle area is roughly 5" long and retains a covering of the original bark. The entire surface length of the cane appears to been sanded smooth. It was then decorated with multiple circular and wavy designs effected by lightly burning the surface. Just below the handle on one side of the cane is an oval where a faded ink stamp reads, “GETTYSBURG JULY 1, 2, 3, 1863. WOOD FROM PICKETT’S CHARGE.” On the opposite side are the seven Corps badges burnt into the cane.

This Gettysburg souvenir wood cane is in very good condition with no cracks and only very minor chipping to the bark at the handle.  [jet]
