Some Conferedates

Back to ACW.  A plan is forming to break the back of the ACW forces by painting for a specific battle.  The Wheatfield at Gettysburg has a strong pull for me.  Anyone who walks those fields late in the afternoon will feel there is something different about that place.  It was an amazingly heroic struggle.

So in that light, I have painted up these two units to represent the 2nd and 3rd South Carolina from Kershaw's Brigade in McLaws' Division.

 

 
And for anyone interested in reading about the battle, this is a great story.  Amazon has them - but I'm sure many other on-line booksellers also do.
