Semmes' Brigade, McLaws' Division, at Gettysburg


The next few sets of photographs are of my American Civil War Collection. The 4 Georgia regiments of Paul Jones Semmes' Brigade are from the personal collection of Martin Robson from whom I acquired the collection in 2014. The Perry figures are based on thick Litko bases. 

Semmes' Brigade served in Major General Lafayette McLaws' Division at Gettysburg. Brigadier General Semmes was wounded leading a charge across the Wheatfield on July 2nd, 1863 and died 8 days later.
