What is the background on who these prisoners were and what happened to them later. I would like to read some follow up on this if anyone can direct me. Thanks

Here's Buckeye Bill's thread where I got the idea to take the Black & White plaque to the exact location where the Brady photo was taken.
Also there's some background info about them .

One of the first figure I purchased from r. britt a few years ago (at milmartminiatures. com), was this one. It's so iconic. I then purchased a colorized print of the picture and then painted the piece to match the colorized print. My intention was to frame the colorized picture and then mount the figure in front of the picture in a sort-of a "shadow box" effect. I just need to get off my dead rear end and do it.

The shadow box effect sounds like a neat idea. If or when I ever get a chance to cross the pond again I'll drop by and check on your progress.:thumbsup:

This Flat Plaque I made using Super Sculpey Firm Clay in 2013
It measures 6" high x 5" wide with the thickness being 1/4".

The first picture below shows the unpainted version cast in resin.
The second is yours truly taken at the CWT 2017 Gettysburg Muster. I found the exact location of the site of the Mathew Brady photograph taken at Seminary Ridge thanks to @Buckeye Bill's thread .
The third picture was painted for me by a friend from Germany.
The fourth picture was painted by another friend who took on the challenge of painting it in Black & White (monochrome).

This was my second attempt at sculpting a Flat Plaque, the first being a WW2 (Stalingrad) which I have just posted in the Non-Civil War Miniatures section. https://civilwartalk.com/threads/share-your-non-civil-war-miniatures-here.167925/page-18 #342
That will be my next order. Love it. Here is my collection so far. Looking forward to my Flag Bearer getting here.
