Civil War Tails at the Homestead Museum

This attraction features dioramas of battles and camp scenes of the Civil War. The figures in the dioramas are thousands of unique hand-made and hand-painted tiny models of cats in Civil War uniforms. This is a sincere project created with great personal effort, a true labor of love in the modern world.

[Truman Eyler, 09/04/2015]

Thousands of tiny cat soldiers, hand-made from clay by twin sisters Rebecca and Ruth Brown, who like both cats and the Civil War. Each cat represents one soldier (no one-cat-to-ten-soldiers cheating) and the battle scenes are as historically accurate as possible.
