72nd Indiana Mounted Infantryman

"Where the war flames leaped highest on Chickamauga's red field,
Wilder's men held the right and refused then to yield;
Pressed hard front and rear, they stood firm as a rock,
And with their good Spencers they met shock with shock."
~I. F. Mather, 1899










More weathering...

I went back and painted a darker color to the boots and gaiters and then added a thin wash of gloss to give it a more wet/muddy look.
