Remarks of-Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain watching the surrender at Appomatox - April 12 1865.

"Let the batteries open. Order great care and precision in firing. When the batteries at the Peach Orchard cannot be used against the point we intend to attack, let them open on the enemies on the rocky hill."

General Longstreet to Colonel Walton, Washington Artillery

"General, If you put every Union soldier now on the other side of the Potomac on that field to approach me over the same line, I will kill them all before they reach my line."

James Longstreet

"I do not want to make this charge. I do not see how it can succeed. I would not make it now but that General Lee has ordered it and expects it."

The Desktop series of Civil War busts was begun in 2001 as a means of making sculpture available to a wide range of the public.   Each bust is sculpted in clay with painstaking attention to detail in likeness, uniform and insignia. The clay bust is then hardened and used to create a mold which is used in the casting of the final sculpture.

The medium used is a type of ground White Marble that is fused with a bonding agent to give the finished piece the appearance of finely chiselled Marble. The designation "Desktop" is derived from the size of the bust. At 5 inches in height by 3 inches in width the sculpture is large enough to be pleasing to the eye yet not interfere with work taking place at the desk.

Price: $25
