Remember this kit?  One of the great 120mm releases from S&T Miniatures.  This one and their D-Day paratrooper were quite popular around the time HBO ran their series "Band of Brothers".

Another one of my favorites.  Midway, 1942.  A 1/32nd scale pilot from UltraCast, sculpted by Mike Good.  Tail is from an old Revell kit.  Figure painted in oils and the plane airbrushed with acrylics.  Click on the picture for a larger image.

This is the flag of the 22nd Alabama Regiment.  As noted in the post below, this flag was captured at Chickamauga by the 121st Ohio.  Click on the picture to see the battle honors in the lower left quarter of the flag.

This is my Great Great Grandfather, Daniel Duvall.  He served with the 121st Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment from 1862-1865.  He attained the rank of sergeant and had the honor of being the regimental standard bearer.  He fought at Perryville, Chickamauga, Kennesaw Mountain, and Bentonville.  He also took part in the Grand Review in Washington DC.  Duvall settled in Michigan and is buried in a small cemetery in McBain.

This is the monument to the 121st Ohio at Chickamauga.  It is near this spot that the 121st captured the battleflag of the 22nd Alabama during hand to hand combat.
