A Couple Civil War Figures

Next up is a couple of Civil War figures I picked up in Concorde, MA.
I think these are supposed to depict an officer and flag bearer from the Iron Brigade at Gettysburg.  During the Civil War, communication was difficult, so the flag bearer was used as a spot to rally the men.  Because of his importance, he was frequently a target for enemy soldiers.
