William J. Sullivan Collection: United States. Army. Ohio Infantry Regiment, 21st

As you play with your classic Civil War soldiers set, you can’t help but wonder what it was like to serve in a volunteer infantry regiment during the War Between the States. Ever one for accuracy, you utilize the Sullivan collection to recreate the Battle of Chickamauga and other movements of the 21st Ohio throughout the war. Utilizing battle reports, field orders, correspondence, and muster rolls (all of which arrived in their original Adjutant's field desk!), you reconstruct the paths of your extended family of relatives from Northwest Ohio counties, capturing details that allow you to make your play even more realistic. Move over Civil War re-enactors. This is the real deal!
