Washington Crosses the Delaware

Writing Style

Horse chestnut planted by George Washington circa 1794.

During the last years of his life, George Washington planted 13 horse chestnut saplings in Downtown Fredericksburg, VA & named them for the 13 original colonies.  The last remaining tree, the Georgia Tree, was felled in 2004 & preserved.  From that same Georgia Tree we created this honorary series.

Original Artwork by Karen Libecap.

Using Emanuel Leutze's 'Washington Crossing the Delaware' (1851) for reference, Karen Libecap hand-paints a miniature likeness in monotone oils. 

Limited 76 Pen Series.

From start to finish, concept to construction, Eagle pens are made & assembled in America.  We collaborate with select artists, jewelers, & machinists to create limited edition works.


Two versions of this series are offered, a Red-Letter edition and a Ballpoint.  The Red-Letter edition is a fountain pen (configurable as a rollerball) featuring hand-painted artwork and historic material while the Ballpoint solely features the historic material.  Both versions come inked and prepared in a beautiful matching box with a display shard of the historic relic and signed paperwork.
