Overview

From Vicksburg to Gettysburg, stage the great battles of the American Civil War with this authentically rendered, sturdy, full-color toy soldier collection in paper form. One hundred easy-to-assemble, freestanding Union and Confederate soldiers in detailed infantry, artillery, and cavalry uniforms (ca. 1863) help re-create the historic drama of the great clash of armies in the War Between the States.
Sixteen full-color plates — eight for each army — depict privates, noncommissioned officers, field officers and general officers, fully outfitted with weapons and equipment appropriate to their rank. You'll find combat-ready foot soldiers walking, loading muskets, taking aim, on the attack; commanders on horseback with sabres flashing, ready to lead the charge; marching soldiers with fife and drums; standard bearers, artillerymen, and more. This fascinating, educational collection comes complete with an array of cannons, ammunition boxes, tents and campfires, flags, stacked rifles, and other items for authentic re-enactments of battlefield drama.
Artist A. G. Smith provides clear diagrams and complete easy-to-follow assembly instructions. All you need are scissors, glue, and your imagination to set up these colorful, freestanding figures, and re-create the exciting battles that made American history!
