Salute 2018 – ACW & Wild West

One of the finest display tables at Salute 2018 was ‘Glory! From the Halls of Montezuma’ by Ian Smith & Friends. Set in the American Civil War, it portrayed Union forces attempting to take Charleston with an assault by land and sea.

    1. Your torture will soon be over, just one my post for tomorrow. I am not particularly interested in ACW, but the period seems to spawn some great looking tables every year.
