The Cantiniere's Canteen 1862

Inspired by the Franco-Austrian War print I thought I'd try this CW set-up. I can't "prove" that there was a real Civil War Cantinere/Vivandiere who set up a mobile bar/restaurant as the French women did, but there is that one image by Alfred Waud of one working out of a wagon.



  1. Great scene....I see a pose or two I assume are conversions ? Guy seated with hand up and man at rear of wagon ....

    1. The figure behind the wagon is a BMC Andersonville prisoner with a new head and the figure with his hand up is an IMEX artillery driver with a new head. Thanks for your comments! There a couple of Barzsos and Replicants as you probably already know.
