One of the things I saw that really floored me was Burnside Bridge rendered in 25mm scale. It was absolutely remarkable.
The size of this construction was remarkable as was the accuracy. This diorama makes it pretty clear that the Rebels held a pretty commanding position from the heights on the Sharpsburg side of Antietam Creek.
The Union point of view very much as it appears in the historic Alexander Gardner photo from the same angle.
One of the 51sts is making its move.
The bridge is nearly perfect, save for an important detail, which I kept to myself, not wanting to appear to be a Mr. Smarty pantz, sharpshooting, know-it-all.

Little did these rebs realize that there would be a parking area here one day.
And little do they realize that General Rodman's men are about to appear to their right.
