35th Indiana

The 35th Indian was one of many Irish Regiments (it was also called the 1st Irish) that fought for the Union cause in the Civil War.
 They only have six stands so are a little small for a full Longstreet unit but I have 4 more stands with blue hats to get them up to 10 stands if needed
 The Green Kepi was regimental distinction and one of the reasons I painted this unit, one likes a break from Blue on Blue in ones Union army (or I do any way)
Our officer directing fire and the colors Green flags are one of those things most of the Irish regiments seem to have had at one point or another.
