The 14th Brooklyn Militia (also known as the 84th New York Infantry) was one of the more colorful units in the Union Army of the Potomac. They fought at Gettysburg, including a spirited charge on July 1 in the fields west of town across the Chambersburg Pike. They later were on Culp’s Hill as reinforcements. Pawel has brilliantly painted these wee figures, which appear on his friend Maciek’s wargaming blog With Zeal and With Bayonets Only.

Here are a few photos of sections of the massive HO-scale diorama of the Battle of Gettysburg which is located at the Gettysburg History Center (formerly Patriot Point) on Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A Michigan man constructed the layout in the early 197os in southwestern Michigan and displayed it at a shopping mall in Kalamazoo. Later, the diorama was moved to Artillery Ridge Campground in Gettysburg and more recently was relocated to the present location along the main tourist street in Gettysburg.
