US Civil War Siege Mortar - Battle of Petersburg - The Dictator
US Civil War Dictator Siege Mortar Diorama
About this creation
This is a diorama of what a Union Army Siege Mortar Placement might look like in the Battle of Petersburg. A Union Army captain is looking out with a spy glass for Confederate Army positions while the Mortar crew gets the next shell for the 13 inch siege mortar which sits on a wooden platform. The crew has only four shells but the quartermaster says there is more coming along the way - the Confederate Army is not so lucky. Union heavy mortars like the *Dictator* were instrumental in fall of the heavily fortifications that protected Petersburg and the Confederacy railroad supply hub to Richmond, the Capitol of the Confederacy. When Petersburg fell, Richmond, which was already under a Union Naval Blockade, was firmly in the tight grip of Union General Winfield Scott's Anaconda Snake. With Richmond's supply lines cut, Confederate General Robert E Lee was forced to abandon Richmond to Union Forces. The fall of the Confederate States of America was nearing.

The Union Army Captain is from the Lego Lone Ranger Train Chase set (Lego #79111) and the Union soldiers are from the Lego Lone Ranger Cavalry Builder set (Lego #79106).

This diorama was dismantled to reuse the dictator mortar with a civil war flat train car.
