The 17th Alabama was raised on August 1861 at Montgomery, and put under the command of Colonel Thomas H. Watts. Among other engagements, it participated in the battles of Shiloh, Bentonville, Peach Tree Creek, and Franklin, along with the Atlanta Campaign. When the regiment surrendered in 1865, very few men remained, having sustained dramatic losses during the conflict.

The most desirable thing for an Army is to furnish its soldiers with regular uniforms, but the Confederacy always had many problems achieving such things. The commanders of the Confederate Army preferred to have their men well-equipped and warm above all things. Because of that, the typical fashion of Johnny Reb was described as, “no two dressed alike”. Those men wearing partly uniform and also civilian clothes were widespread, and were known as “Pards”. When the men fought in long-period campaigns and didn’t receive supplies on time, they survived with the generous donations of the Southern people in the form of great appeals and other initiatives done by the states and the Quartermaster Department. Different tones of grey, butternut, and a myriad of civilian clothes could be seen in the same unit at any given time.

This miniature is a classic portrayal of the quintessential Confederate soldier, long out of production, and now re-released in high-quality resin.

Note: This is a resin miniature kit that requires assembly and painting.
