The Civil War Tails at the Homestead Diorama Museum in Gettysburg!

September 26, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Civil War Tails is full of miniature soldiers we made by hand so you can see a 3-D snap-shot from the Civil War. Get a bird’s-eye view of a battle or get down to eye-level and see what a soldier would have seen. See the soldiers, the horses, the cannons, and the places. They’re all made with a one-to-one ratio, so each model soldier represents one soldier during the real battle, not ten or twenty. And since they’re made to scale, if the hill looks really big to climb under rifle fire, that’s because it was!

And I’ll bet you’re wondering why our name is Civil War Tails. It’s not a typo. We started making soldiers out of modeling clay when we were 11 years old and we have always loved cats, so the first soldiers were cats. In uniform. With beards. Now, years later, we still think that’s quirky and fun, and we hope you’ll agree.  www.civilwartails.com
