BobbieSue reporting for WTWC News!
I have a special report about a new museum that has opened in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It’s called Civil War Tails and is “possibly America’s most whimsical war museum.” (Karen Heller, The Washington-Post Weekly).
Rebecca and Ruth Brown, 32-year-old twins, have recreated various battles of the Civil War using clay sculpted into cat soldiers!
The sisters bought a historic house, The Homestead – built in 1869, and established their Diorama museum there. The museum was born of a love of making cat figures and of Civil War history.
Everything is handmade and on a 1:1 scale.
The trees are made of twigs and reindeer moss, each individually glued.
They have made thousands of cats as well as anything a soldier needs for battle – horses, cannons, rifles, tents – all hand made! Please go HERE to see the large size of one of the diorama’s – it’s humongous!!!
Click on their logo to go to their blog/website!!
We haven’t been to the museum, but it is on our list of places to visit!!!
I hope you enjoyed my report – I’ll be back again with more cat/animal news!!
Purrs and Prayers for
The family of Daddy Cat (Jacqueline’s Cat House), who has also moved on across the Rainbow Bridge.
