During the position, the right flank, or "barbed" portion of what is described as the "fish-hook" line. Holding the hill was by itself unimportant because its heavily wooded sides made it unsuitable for artillery placement, but its loss would have been catastrophic to the Union army. It dominated Cemetery Hill and the Baltimore Pike, the latter being critical for keeping the Union army supplied and for blocking any Confederate advance on Baltimore or Washington, D.C.. Over the past few years I've spent quite some time visiting and reading about this portion of the battlefield. On one of my more memorable visits I was accompanied by fellow Planeteer Jason Whitman. This portion of the field, as well as the lack of attention it is given is really unfortunate. The fight for the right of the Union line was just as important if not possibly more important than that which took place on the left. With this in mind I decided to put together a two figure vignette depicting two Confederates assaulting Culp's Hill. The setting Below is a period drawing showing Confederates attacking the Union position. The photograph taken shortly after the battle shows a portion of the Union defensive lines. The groundwork on the base will reflect the look of the terrain on that portion of the battlefield at the time. As livestock grazed on much of the field there was little in the way of undergrowth on the wooded portions. The Figures The figures for this vignette will be two slightly converted Shenandoah Miniatures Confederates. Figure A Figure A will be assembled as depicted on the package art with the addition of cuffed trousers and the shell jacket changed into a frock coat. Figure B Figure B will have resculpted arms to depict a soldier that has just been shot in the upper right arm. The first two photos show the stock figures. Photo B1 shows a mock-up of thefinal pose of figure B.
