The twist? The soldiers are all anthropomorphic cats!
They are having an open house and I am so going to be there! Hope to see you as well!
From the creators of the museum:
You are all excitedly invited to an open house on August 31st from 3-8 p.m., for a sneak preview of our diorama museum! Feel free to stop by whenever is convenient. At long last, we are planning to open on September 1st.
We have been making Civil War soldiers out of clay since 1995 with the twist that—since we were 11 when we started—they’re cats. Over the years, we developed dioramas of various battle and other scenes. On display will be Fort Sumter during the bombardment that started the war, the ironclads U.S.S. Monitor and C.S.S. Virginia (Merrimack), the Angle during Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg, and other scenes from Gettysburg. Check out our website (still under construction—sorry about that!) at www.civilwartails.com. We’re located just at the south edge of town at 785 Baltimore Street, Gettysburg.
We’re so excited to share our dioramas, a childhood dream come true. God has been faithful all along and we thank and praise him for his provision! ~ Ruth & Rebecca
