Armor of the American Civil War ribbon
This award signifies that the recipient successfully completed the 2016-17 Armor of the American Civil War Campaign

Operational Overview
The American Civil war was a brutal conflict that involved vast citizen armies and featured the use of (relatively) fast loading arms, massed artillery, and even observation balloons. One thing it did not have was armored fighting vehicles. But the war left a lasting impression on the US Army and gave us the names of famous generals, names that four score years later began to be assigned to weapons in a very different conflict. This campaign is for those AFVs named after leaders in the Civil War. By that I mean:

M3 Medium General Lee
M3 Medium General Grant
M3 Light General Stuart
M4 Medium General Sherman
M36 Tank Destroyer General Jackson
M8 HMC General Scott
M551 Sheridan
And, since the British did the naming in the first place, and it is named for a Civil War leader:
Cruiser Tank Mk VIII Cromwell

The Rules and Regs
1. Entry must be an AFV named after a Civil War leader.
2. No what-ifs.
3. Any scale and any nationality (including captured vehicles) that fits into rule 1.
4. Models can be stand-alone or in a diorama.
5. Enter as many as you like but each modeler will only get one ribbon.
6. Models must be no more that 25% started at beginning of campaign and you must post at least one photo of where your kit is at the start of the campaign in the campaign thread.
7. At least two in progress shots of each model should be posted in the campaign thread and at least two finished shots in the campaign gallery.
8. Oh yeah, have fun!
