To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Stonewall Jackson’s Shenanadoah Valley Campaign, we have partnered with Wellington, Ltd. to produce a beautiful special edition rifle as a tribute. Only 150 will ever be produced. Each is individually numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. A portion from the sale of every Shenandoah Valley Campaign comes to the Foundation.
The Shenandoah Valley Campaign 150th Anniversary Special Edition is a Collector's Grade Henry Big Boy .45LC rifle with blued barrel. The engraved artwork is set on the natural brass of the receiver and defined with jewelry-grade nickel, making it a new and unique design for this work of art. Images on both sides of the receiver, forearm guards, and stock pay tribute to, among others, General Stonewall Jackson, Brigadier General Turner Ashby "The Black Knight of the Confederacy, The First Battle of Winchester, The Battle of Cross Keys, and the Battle of Port Republic, all taken from this incredible historic period. Local artist, Mr. Keith Rocco of Traditions Studios in Edinburg, VA graciously permitted the use of his painting of the Battle of Port Republic in this edition. This is a limited edition and will be a family heirloom for years to come.
