They sure could be nailed from the top.Miss Violet
Miss Violet is right about not holding the highest ground, but I could work with that!... :-)
We need another Stand Watie and gang to patrol that.:)No monuments or marble shaftsKeep silent record of the timeWhen grey clan ranks of warriors rodeThe Indian Nation line.But mists of time have not eclipsedThe ancient stories of the day,And still the whispered words are heard,"Stand Watie passed this way."The noon of darkness casts its spell:Dutch Billy's bugle sounds once moreAnd Watie heads his column outTo ride through legend's door.Now once again the muskets fireWhile "Eagle" Buzzard spirits soars,And smoothbores spew their deadly hailAs Watie leads to war.But now - the Red Fox rides no more,No bands of men, with muffled soundSlip through the night to strike at dawn;The fight is thru, the moon is down.Now who will sing old Watie's song,And who will tell his tale,And who will keep the rendezvousAlong the Texas Trail? http://www.namsouth.com/viewtopic.php?t=54&highlight=watie
I blew it up 400%. 99% sure it's a model. The window curtains on the cottage on the far right are painted in.
Great job and thanks. Wish there was a real one!:)
