Americana #98530 Authentic Gettysburg Action Figures Playset - Pt 2

Today we'll take a look at the accessories included in the playset. Most of these we've covered before, them having been included in other Americana sets: Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Meade's HQ was just covered back on 11 Sep.

All the figures have also been previously covered here on the blog

General Winfield Scott Hancock 

Union General Grant on Horse

General James Longstreet 

Gen Lee

Here's a couple of accessories not covered in previous posts.

Flagpole. Each flagpole comes in two pieces, the pole and a rock pile base/ It's the tallest Civil War pole that I'm aware of at 7 1/2" (19.1cm) H

Lee's HQ. Lee's headquarters during the conflict was a stone house on Seminary Ridge owned by "Widow" Mary Thompson

The Americana version measures 10 1/2" (26.7cm) W x 10 1/2"(26.7cm) D x 6 5/8" (16.8cm) H. The thing assembled without too much hassle but those chimneys refused to lay on the roof straight. To keep them in a proper upright position would require snipping off one or both of the attachment pegs and gluing them on the roof with perhaps some clear silicon glue.
