contents of this website represent a life's work. My father Bernard
Baker has collected, created and painted over 2000 unique American Civil
War model soldiers, which accurately show the uniforms of over 96 individual
regiments both Union and Confederate, that took part in the conflict
My father was diagnosed with motor neurone disease
in 2009 and it is his fervent wish that this unique collection be on
public display. To that end I have been working with him to catalogue
and photograph the collection for this website as a precursor to finding
a new permanent home for the physical collection.
If you have an interest in this period of American history I hope
that you will find these images stimulating, if you think that you may
be able to find a home for the physical collection please do not
hesitate to make contact. Alan Baker.
