Hi there,

since such a lot of people liked my pictures of my latest built, the USS Choctaw model, I thought you might also like what I have done before that ironclad. It all started a few years ago, when I stumbled across a 1:72 model of the CSS Hunley. After I received the little kit I was a bit disappointed about its poor quality but soon...

Gents, Not sure about these as the estate had quite a bit of Civil War and Indian war era gear jumbled together. Any inputs would be much appreciated.

The American Civil War

The American Civil War, arguably the most traumatic event in the history of the United States, was fought from 1861 to 1865, and was the culmination of sectional issues which deeply divided the country between a pro-Federal government North and a pro-states rights, in the pro-slavery South, whose eleven states formed a breakaway government called the Confederate States of America. The costliest war in terms of human lives, the American Civil War claimed in excess of 620,000 battle or disease-related deaths - roughly two percent of the country's total population, and nearly more deaths than all other American wars combined.
