Another new release from the former Cromwell series - - -"Before the Battle" (#54004), Gettysburg, July 3rd 1863 which is a three figure vignette, 54-mm scale resin kit. Three infantry figures gather to pray before their participation in Pickett's Charge.

Brief history: In the 3rd summer of the War, prior to the ill-fated assault led by Gen James Longstreet on the Union center known as “Pickett’s Charge”, members of the Army of Northern Virginia gather in the woods behind the artillery barrage. These now-seasoned veterans knew of the hazard of their task and gather in prayer.

Thanks for the news Jim, I hadn't seen this one before, and I think it's a well composed vignette that may well find it's way onto my shelf at some point!

As Dave so clearly stated, "a well composed vignette". Indeed, very well done, placement of the three figs with how they all interact to complete the theme. Knowing from my reading of that last day at Gettysburg — of just how many of the Confederates perished crossing that long distance of that open field, marching in perfect formation in Picket's Charge — I see this as a very touching piece. That it would appear on the American Memorial Day, a time when we think back on all those who have — to use Lincoln's words: given their last full measure of devotion for the freedoms that we enjoy, is even more fitting for me personally. In my own nation's history, freedom has exacted a great price. Or as I have heard recently, "Freedom is not free".
