American Civil War/ Joshua Chamberlain

The American Civil War has always been one of my wargaming interests. Now and then I keep on building on my collection. As the collection of civil war units grows the need for commanders grows as well.  In this case I found that I long ago bought a couple of miniatures First Corps Figures that were supposed to depict certain characters from the Civil war.  The miniature drawing the sword is supposed to be Colonel Joshua Chamberlain. Chamberlain was the officer that led the 20th Maine at the Little Round Top, during the battle of Gettysburg.  Now I am not certain that this looks like Chamberlain, but it will do fine as a generic depiction of a Union colonel or general.

  1. I do get a distinct Chamberlin feeling, at least when thinking of the way Jeff Daniels portrayed him in "Gettysburg" - and that map is brilliantly done, you even got Little and Big Round Top on the map I see!
