    Purcell Artillery, 1861 -Outdoor Dioramas-

    Purcell (Richmond) Artillery
    Richmond, Virginia
    May 1861

    -Outdoor Dioramas-

    Here is the previously posted crew with the SST Gun (6-pounder 1841 Field Artillery Gun).
    The battery commander, Capt Walker supervising the operation, a sergeant helping the gun’s crew, made up of the gun commander, a corporal, and his three artillerymen.
    I prepared some ordnance for the gun. Painted some appropriately sized marbles and also used the marbles, balsa wood, cloth ribbon and some cloth to make the prepared rounds.



















    Finally an additional series of images, inspired on a period photo of a totally different group, of the captain, sergeant and corporal posing after the artillery demonstration.
    In the last images a visiting friend from South Carolina (Lieutenant of B Co. “Palmetto Riflemen” South Carolina 4th Inf. Rgt.) also poses with these men and the artillery piece.

    Excellent Ed! What a collection. It's a damn shame that Mac didn't get to see this. With his love of ACW artillery, this would have been right up his street.

    That is just plain fantastic. Your creativity and orignality never cease to amaze.

    Absolutely beautiful! I especially like the last pics. You should do those in sepia.

    Outstanding. Your assembly of uniforms is mindblowing. I'd love to see a pic of these guys actually operating the gun. I hope to do something like this with my 3-inch Ordnance Rifle.

    Very, very nice. I love the last picture in particular. It looks just like period photos taken of real batteries.

    Some wondered how these would look in “sepia” finish.
    Thanks to my good friend Juanjo (Kowalski) who is a PhotoShop wiz.

    Very nice - it is good to see these pics ( and the inspiration pic as well ) The sepia effect really captures the feel of the source pic. Great job
