To go a step even further, the typical "Confederate Flag" (the kind you see in the rear windows of pickup trucks) is actually the battle flag that Joe Johnston introduced to the Confederate Army of the Tennessee in 1864. Since the Civil War, it has been used by hate groups and bigots for their own agendas. As a native of Ohio, I have seen this flag displayed more often in southern Ohio and Kentucky (Union States) than anywhere in the South. "Rednecks" and Racists love this flag. I beleive it does a great disservice to the men that actually fought under it (whether they were pro-slavery or not). The official flag(s) of the Confederate government (there were three between 1861-1865) are rarely displayed outside of Living History circles. By the way, I beleive the term "redneck" has been beaten to death , and should only be used in referring to Michigan farmhands, as the term was originally intended.
I would have to agree with Paul in reaard to the mystery figure, after all his attire is that of no other civi; War uniform with a very European look
I agree. This is certainly "one of the best" sets produced by the S*R Team.
In fact, they are so good, I have to memorize their real names to go with their real personalities. No more making-believe with these fine figurines. No faceless soldiers in thier latest releases!
I can only hope us U.S. customers :-( are able to get some sets before summer.
Au Revoir for now & Happy Collecting
would you be interested to see the sculptor's face behind this set?
Yes, I most certainly would be honored to see. In fact, all of your customers would be. But as we have discussed on the forum about scluptors and confidentiality, would I be wrong in guessing we will find him immortalized in one of the figurines masters? This would be unique, or an actual picture, or ... ?
As for me, I can't wait; I'm chomping on my bit wanting to kick the gate down.
