From Vicksburg to Gettysburg, stage the great battles of the American Civil War with this authentically rendered, sturdy, full-color toy soldier collection in paper form. One hundred easy-to-assemble, freestanding Union and Confederate soldiers in detailed infantry, artillery and cavalry uniforms (ca. 1863) help recreate the historic drama of the great clash of armies in the War Between the States.

Sixteen full-color plates - eight for each army - depict privates, noncommissioned officers, field officers, and general officers, fully outfitted with weapons and equipment appropriate to their rank. You'll find combat-ready foot soldiers walking, loading muskets, taking aim, on the attack; commanders on horseback with sabres flashing, ready to lead the charge; marching soldiers with fife and drums; standard bearers, artillerymen and more. This fascinating, educational collection comes complete with an array of cannons, ammunition boxes, tents, and campfires, flags stacked rifles and other items for authentic re-enactments of battlefield drama.

Artist A.G. Smith provides clear diagrams and complete easy-to-follow assembly instructions. All you need are scissors, glue and your imagination to set up these colorful, freestanding figures and recreate the exciting battles that made American history!
