Civil War Enactment toy soldiers Made in England Deetail 1971 Cannon/Gatling. Condition is Used and in a played with condition. Most pieces are in very good condition (see pictures). Some pieces have been painted in places, may need touch-up painting in places.For nearly 50 year old pieces these are in really nice condition with no major damage that I can see other than general wear and tear. The 2 Gatling guns look great and 2 cannon(Napoleon 12 pounders).
One cannon used for props in photo has a crack on the frame but still usable as a cannon if needed, can be reassembled. The cannon and Gatling gun don't seem able to fire BBs but there are some BB cannon balls on the one Gatling gun storage. There are 14 horses with metal bases one confederate rider has no saddle. , 4 Artillery soldiers(plastic base), 2 barricades, , 20 metal based soldiers. 2 Gatling guns and 2 cannon as described make up this incredible quality scenario.
A brief history of the viciousness of war. At Reams Station in August 1864, the 10th Massachusetts Battery fought from behind a low makeshift barricade, with its horses fully exposed only a few yards behind the guns. The battery was fighting with five guns, and in a short time the five teams of six horses came under fire.Within minutes only two of the 30 animals were still standing, and these all bore wounds. One horse was shot seven times before it went down. Other horses were hit, went down, and struggled back up, only to be hit again. The average number of wounds suffered by each horse was five. The Confederates were firing from a cornfield approximately 300 yards away.
