These are the five ACW ships that my uncle built mostly from scratch with a few laser cut and engraved detail items that I provided. They're for our club's upcoming game day which will be an alternate history scenario based on the forces in and about Fort Donaldson. The what if portion is what if the Confederate generals had performed exceptionally instead of how they did historically.
In the top two photos, the all-white boat is a Confederate transport along with a Confederate tin clad. The bottom two photos are of the Union ships: two Cairo class ironclads and a hastily built and rushed to the battle troop transport. These ships will be an added dimension to a very large land battle in and about the Fort and the surrounding earthworks. Should be an EPIC game.
