Hey Plelv44_Mangrov,

I just found the site, from where you have found these pictures. Great pics, thanks http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
Some of the pictures, especially of the civil war are very sad, some drawings are even quite funny.

Geez the German/Fin uniform is sooo cool.

No wonder the helmets of the US/UK armies are a similar shape nowadays.

They obviously thought "Wow these Germans look cool when they are fighting, lets copy their uniforms then we might look as sexy" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
