A journal of the Civil War, little toy soldiers, and family history.
Tuesday, 7 February 2012
As the letters of John Stewart Walker clearly demonstrate, for most soldiers, most of the Civil War was about marching around, setting up camp, marching some more, and being bored. While camp-life doesn't make for a very interesting wargaming, I am glad that several figure manufacturers have looked past that and offered some non-combatant figures for sale. I recently painted one up to accompany the Army of Oxford. This guys is off to cut some wood took keep the camp-fires going.
