The ladies of Civil War Tails have done a great service to those of us who love the quirky, whimsical, and eccentric-and who doesn't? What has impressed me the most is the attention to detail and accuracy while at the same time being fun. Everyone asks how to get young people interested in history. To me, Civil War Tails is a far better answer than more video games. -- Joe Mieczkowski, Licensed Battlefield Guide
As a Licensed Battlefield Guide at Gettysburg, I was impressed by the amount of detail and research that the owners of Civil War Tails Museum put into the creation of their dioramas. It is clear that they have studied the battle intensively and have used that knowledge in creating and enhancing the historical realism of their dioramas. Their museum is an excellent venue for people who might not normally be interested in the battle. -- John Baniszewski, Licensed Battlefield Guide, www.HistoryAndLeadership.com
The Civil War Tails Diorama Museum is a pleasure to visit for both history aficionados and casual visitors alike. The Brown sisters have dedicated countless hours to historical research in order to meticulously re-create pivotal events in the American Civil War. Only upon close examination does the visitor realize the soldiers in the dioramas are cats. A novel museum for our age, and so well done. -- Joseph Miechle, Educator, Hampton Roads Naval Museum
The research is thorough ... the novelty of cats as models for soldiers engages the Civil War novice and buff alike ... and the three-dimensional battle action design brings pivotal historic clashes-large and small-to life in a captivating, distinctive way. -- Renae MacLachlan, Licensed Battlefield Guide, Gettysburg National Military Park
