The one particular model is based on Colonel Joshua Chamberlain alongside his brother Thomas Chamberlain, the former of which found himself immortalised in history during the Battle Of Gettysburg. It was the charge by Chamberlain and his troops on Little Round Top which defeated a Confederate advance and probably saved Major General George Gordon Meade’s Army of the Potomac.

The call of "Bayonets!" was enough to urge his men into action and despite some hesitancy, it seems like Chamberlain, whether blessed with good luck or simply good sense, was able to turn the tide.

"Spear, who would later become a brevet brigadier general, believed that all the officers at Little Round Top shared in the battle fully and honourably, but that the bayonet charge was a success largely due to the spirit of the enlisted men. He was convinced that only the tenacity of the 358 Maine men had enabled Chamberlain to defeat Oates’ two Alabama regiments."

It is certainly a very evocative moment in history and the miniatures give you an apt chance to dive in and recreate it for yourself.
