'Civil War News' page added

Just the briefest of posts to launch the new 'Civil War News' page; the tab is located just below the title banner.  A gift from my father many years ago this hugely impressionable set of trading cards recently resurfaced and I was horrified to find that there were gaps in what was once a complete set.  Fortunately with the magical infoweb at my fingertips and those good people at 'Fleabay' I have been able to put the collection back together again without too much of a financial drain!

The set has already inspired the construction of a diorama with 'Through the Swamp' so it seemed only fitting to give the rest of the cards a permanent page; who knows perhaps  there will be future projects lifted from their lurid and violent depictions of the American Civil War.


  1. Lurid colours and graphic violence!

    What more could a young boy want?!

  2. Very nice sir. Never saw anything like these before.
