    This is my version of an individual painting by Don Troiani of a corporal of the 47th North Carolina Infantry at Gettysburg. Mr. Troiani describes his corporal as having received a new uniform in May of 1863 for the Gettysburg Campaign. The blue trim is for infantry, with black corporal...

    This figure will be familiar to the 1/6 Civil War crowd as the majority of it's parts came standard with the Sideshow Toys 146th New York Infantry figure. I originally bought one for the musket and accoutrements, but more reading on the Civil War, and Gettysburg in particular, opened my eyes to...

    Along side of the Emmitsburg Road South of Gettysburg, stands a monument with a Zouave soldier loading his rifle-musket, next to the Sherfy farmhouse. It was here that the 114th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, with other units as part of "Sickle's Salient", met the charge of General William...

    This figure was inspired by Don Troiani's painting of a Georgia infantryman that apparently also inspired the design team from Sideshow Toys, many of whom were Civil War reenactors. They produced a carded set for the 53rd Georgia that was very close to the painting, with the addition of a bed...

    Hello. My name is markh166, and I am a "Completionist". After watching an episode of "American Pickers", I was finally able to self-diagnose my affliction. It was an episode about a collector who had one of every possible variant of tv/movie lunch boxes - and also a killer collection of 1/6...

    As with many of us, about 15 years ago I was thrilled to find the Sideshow Toys line of American Civil War figures, "Brotherhood of Arms". With a heavy interest in the ACW, I bought many for bashes for Indian War figures, so I skipped a few and parted out the ones I did buy. My interest in...

    On July 3, 1863, as the Army of Northern Virginia prepared for one last mighty assault on the center of the Union Line on Cemetery Ridge, Major General Jeb Stuart and his gray horsemen once again circled around behind the Federal Army, intending to wreck havoc in their rear and enabling...

    fire03 and I have very similar interests, the difference being is that he produces a lot more of his than I do. Back in December of 2013, he posted "The First Shot at Gettysburg" and I continued to leave mine simmering somewhere. Unfortunately, his photos are not there anymore to even compare...

    In Michael J. Winey's excellent reference book, "Confederate Army Uniforms at Gettysbug", he uses photos taken of dead Confederate soldiers as part of his data base. Included are the now famous photos by Alexander Gardner of a "Sharpshooter at Devil's Den", which William A. Frassanito...

    One of my personal favorites among Don Troiani's individual portraits is his Private of the 45th NY Volunteer Infantry at Gettysburg. Besides being a NY regiment with their distinctive jacket, they carried the 1841 "Mississippi" Rifle with sword bayonet. The artist captured the Germanic pose...
