Malvern Hill Commemorative Brick

As a small child I remember a Malvern Hill brick resting near the fireplace of my family home. To me it represented a great war fought long ago, but only a few miles down the road. After the battle the Union troops would rest in tents in the farm fields just steps away from my back door. I never asked my father about the brick as it didn't need much explanation, I knew, however, that he was very proud of it, even though our ancestors had fought for the south. I suppose, like many of us, I wish I had asked him more questions. I eventually found out that these bricks were produced at a brick kiln at Malvern Hill, VA after the war and were sold as commemorative pieces. Though this example has some chipping on the bottom edge, this particular brick is in much better condition than my father's as this one has no cracks and no repairs. This would be a very cool item to use either as a bookend or even inserted as part of the bricks of a fireplace. The scene on the front of the brick clearly shows a cannon and the following lettering "Malvern Hill Jul 1st 1862" The overall condition is very good with some chipping and wear. Approx. 1 1/2 x 4 x 8 1/2 inches.
