well done cooster, great setting and detail! some very nice pics there!  ;D
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

This is a very realistic-looking battle.  :o
I feel sorry for the klickies who fell in the line of duty. :(
I hope the sweet little drummer boy survived and didn't catch a stray bullet.
 
It's obvious a lot of work went into the research, set-up and photography of this scene.
Thanks for sharing it with us, cooster. :)

From one of the football players, perhaps?
I think both the French (4710) and Italian (4712) figures have short sleeves in a similar shade of blue.

My money's on the French one, for obvious reasons. ;)

Simply because of Cooster's location. ;)

I was wrong anyway.
No wonder I'm so broke! :'( ;)


Sorry for going OT again, everyone.

Sylvia, sorry to disillusion you, but as a long time student of military history, I have to say Drummer Boys are seldom "sweet".
