Didn't get any photos when I was there, but the National Park Service's Fort Necessity site has the old Mt Vernon diorama on display.

They're quite intent on letting everyone know that the fight was between 400 Virginia and South Carolina militia against 700 French and their Indian allies. https://www.nps.gov/fone/battle.htm

The figures are in an odd scale – like 3" tall or so.

I can see where someday a motivated group could update the display with 28mm figures on the same diorama, which would give a better sense of scale for that battle.

Not sure how this got crossposted to the Napoleonic boards – if someone could cut that link, that'd be great.
