Welcome to James Nicholson's Civil War Homepage!
Here is a link to a cool civil war pictures site:  Kevin's Civil War Pictures
As a reenactor I portray a typical western federal infatryman.  Below is a formation of the 2nd Battalion at Carthage.
I am a member of the Consolidated Battalion 7th and 30th Missouri Volunteer Infantry also known as the "Missouri Irish Brigade".  CLICK HERE to visit the 7th and 30th web site.  My unit is also a member of the US Frontier Brigade which is the 3rd Brigade, 1st Federal Division.

During the War the 30th Missouri was armed with the 1853 patterned Enfield Rifle (Pictured below).  The 7th Missouri was initially armed with 1842 Springfield rifled-muskets, and after Vicksburg with captured Rebel Enfields.  To the right is a picture of what the typical western soldier looked like.
