Raise Our Flag by wolfjedisamuel Raise Our Flag by wolfjedisamuel
I was inspired by the music from the CMC Episode "Flight to the Finish" - "Hearts strong as horses" www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjMyKQ…

It reminisces of (in particular) Civil War or military themed music. So, I had a little free time on my hands and made this. Had some advice from the PHbronies and well and did gone through with this piece.

By the way, this is my ever first Civil War related piece, and I'm pretty ecstatic with the results.

The one on the left on the hill is wearing infantry and artillery insignias.
And the cavalry sabers are upside down!  Or was that on purpose?
Wait a minute... as ponies...would they all be cavalry?

You hear the thunder of guns, we hear the rhythm of drumbeats as we march on with our flag with our heads held up high!

This is the most epic Civil War themed thing since Iced Earth's Gettysburg Trilogy. :D

Well thank you kindly

Wow. That's pretty cool.
I don't hear of  a lot of female Civil war reanactors to be honest, so I'm intrigued. What do you usually play in battle?

The uniforms are a little on the gray side and insignia on their kepis is wrong(Infantry was a French hunting horn, NOT crossed rifles) but other than THAT, I am a Civil War Reenactor, and I: APPROVE.:D:salute: rvmp O_O:D I JUST SAW THE quote....*fan-boy squeal*

I understand that. 
I'm not a Civil War buff, I'm more earlier with WW2. Plus being my first Civil War art, I basically made a shot in the dark.

Thanks for your insights though.

Ok what side are they on? I'm guessing North due to the uniform color.

Friendship may be magic, but does that magic protect against passive aggressive threats like mines?

Now we just need a solemn narration while Fiddlesticks plays "Appaloosan Farewell" in the background.

"My very dear Cadance.  The indications are very strong that we shall move in a few days -  perhaps tomorrow..."
