Post the American Civil War veterans of both sides who were members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood invaded Canada and a battle was fought a Ridgeway which they won. The US Government wouldn’t support the venture and told them to come home-which they did. It’s an unusual and little known conflict but it has its fans and I’ve seen some splendid recreations in 28mm. I’ve always quite fancied doing it but I don’t do 28mm and 15mm figures for the Canadians didn’t seem to be about so I didn’t.
Anyhow, Rebels and Patriots included a list for Ridgeway and I came across some 15mm figures for the Canadians so I decided to have a go. Here’s a couple of pics.
I used Battle Honours ACW for the IRB.
They fit together nicely with the Canadians.
