Pea Ridge in Miniature


Dioramist Stephen Schultheis sent me several photos of his revised and expanded diorama of the Civil War battle of Pea Ridge. Known also as the battle of Elkhorn Tavern, Pea Ridge was fought on March 7 and 8, 1862, near Leetown, Arkansas. Some 16,500 Confederates under Earl Van Dorn clashed with 10,250 Union soldiers under the command of Samuel R. Curtis. More than half of Curtis’s force were German immigrants led by Franz Sigel (of “I fites mit Sigel” fame).

Here are some of Stephen’s photos. Great work!
