Product Details

Civil War regiments were usually made up of ten companies of about 50 men, each of which was designated by a letter between A and K (J not used). A regiment would be commanded by a Colonel and Lieutenant Colonel, and companies by captains.

Colonel Kenton Harper, was given command of the 5 th Virginia Infantry regiment on May 7th 1861. Harper and the 5 th Virginia fought well during the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21st 1861, “where his soldierly ability attracted the notice of the army commander”.

Harper was to resign from the Confederate Army on September 11th, because Jackson refused to allow Harper permission to return home where his wife lay dying.

One company that stood out the most were the Continental Morgan Guards. Its men wore blue coats and tri corn hats in exact imitation of George Washington’s forces.

Scale 1:30 / 60MM
