Union Cavalry of the American Civil War

Union Cavalry of the American Civil War

15 mm Heritage Miniatures of Union Cavalry, with a Confederate figure mixed in for variety. The troopers are mounted individually and in pairs, using 12.5 × 25 mm and 25 × 25 mm stands compatible with Complete Brigadier wargame rules. This basing allows the formation of road column with two figures frontage, and troop column with three figures frontage. The two-figure stands may be used to build cavalry brigades for Fire and Fury wargames.

The Union Army raised 272 cavalry regiments during the American Civil War, most of which were volunteer cavalry regiments from different states.
