2012 Christmas Ornament - My Friend, the Enemy

We proudly introduce our 17th edition Mort Kunstler Collectible Ornament for 2012 entitled "My Friend, The Enemy" The scene in this ornament is set on Virginia’s Rappahannock River near Fredericksburg following the terribly bloody battle th
at occurred there a few weeks earlier. As if they were weary of the war's inhumanity, Southern and Northern soldiers began meeting with each other between the lines. Such fraternization was forbidden on both sides, but the soldiers did so anyway that winter. They met to play cards, exchange gossip and, in this scene, are bartering Northern coffee for Southern tobacco.

The 2012 ornament is also the second in a mini-series of five ornaments entitled the 150th Anniversary Series and commemorates the 150th anniversary of the War Between the States.
