War between the States
Rebel drummer boy keeping up with the advance.

The Reverse view, this drummer wears somewhat of a regulation, Confederate uniform, with light gray tunic, light blue trousers, cuffs and collar. He has a very simple Kepi hat with no insignias and black leather bill and belting.

This is a home cast figure. The lead is heated to liquid state, which is around 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and poured with a ladle into the top of black rubber molds. Gravity causes the lead to move into the cavities of the mold to make a casting. I trim the flash and file away any excess metal and assemble the figure as with a kit.
