Gettysburg Souvenir Glass Paper Weight - Featuring the High Water Mark. Measures approximately 4 3/8" x 2 3/8".
The high-water mark of the Confederacy refers to an area on Cemetery Ridge near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, marking the farthest point reached by Confederate forces during Pickett's Charge on July 3, 1863. Similar to a high water mark of water, the term is a reference to arguably the Confederate Army's best chance of achieving victory in the war. The line of advance was east of "The Angle" stone wall at various distances.
