I am very lucky to have married a woman much smarter than me. Michaela and I were talking about that ridiculous collectible showing a Union soldier having his leg sawed off and she suggested that only within the context of the Civil War would this type of thing be acceptable. Perhaps she is wrong, but can you imagine such a scene involving a soldier from WWII or Vietnam? What does this tell us about the way we identify with the Civil War?
Other suggestions for Civil War miniatures:
My suggestions included "Execution of Confederate Soldier for Desertion" and "Union Soldier Relieving Himself While on March"
Others suggestions: "[H]eadless Union/Confederate soldier with a canonball suspended behind the body/corpose, as well as the head going another way" [Perhaps we could use the image of the young Confederate soldier who had his head severed at Malvern Hill. We could call it "Innocence Lost".]
