  • Have you ever heard of Battle of High Bridge? One of many engagements during the Civil War, it was battle for a long bridge over the Appomattox River in Virginia. While our bridge figurine isn’t quite as large as that one, it’s an equally important choke point to control!
  • Characteristics: Your soldiers have found a path over the river, but be warned – crossing will leave them exposed to enemy fire. Hand painted for life like realism, this bridge figurine is an excellent aid in creative play, as part of a Civil War diorama or project, as a teaching aid in or outside of a classroom, or as part of a war themed statuette collection.
  • Size and Color: 5.75 inches long, 3 inches wide and 1.75 inches tall, this bridge model is a little larger than a soda can on its side. Colored to represent a crossing in a war-torn piece of land, this cement gray stone bridge has ashy-black markings and craters from the result of cannon fire.
  • The Civil War Bridge is part of the TOOBS® collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free
  • History:

    Pockmarked by errant damage from artillery and explosions during a Civil War battle, this bridge has seen better days. Did you know that during war time, an ancient yet common strategy is to destroy various choke points, bridges included, to inhibit the march of large armies? When you combine this bridge figurine with our other Civil War models, you can wage your very own battle for control over this invaluable river crossing!

    Strategic locations during wartime, bridges often served as Military hiding spots and battle sites. Armies would often construct emergency "pontoon bridges", made by laying wood across rows of small floating boats, to cross rivers lacking a pre-existing bridge.
