Q: How can I remove a thick layer of mortar from a fieldstone fireplace?

My fireplace has a thick layer of mortar on the interior face of the chimney. In the mortar is the handprint of the mason and above it the date -- Nov. 10, 1859. I'd like to get it out intact, but it's pretty well bonded to the stone.
