Civil War Tails: Miniature Catfight

This place was awesome! It was everything I wanted it to be. The owners of Civil War Tails were incredibly nice. So helpful. I cannot recommend it enough. Truly a work of love by talented artists.

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.
