OK, I'll play…

This is Roger Doolittle who founded the town of Newton, Mississippi, and named it after his son, Newton. Most of you will recognize the name of this town, made famous by Grierson's Raid ("The Horse Soldiers"). The lad was seven years old at the time of the raid.

This model is the BLUE MOON Doctor's Buggy, from their Old West line.

A couple more vignettes from the "Horse Soldiers" diorama of the Newton Station raid:

A Confederate Hospital sat across the tracks from Newton Station, and one of the Doolittle daughters worked there as a nurse. Grierson paroled the sick & wounded Reb soldiers, then burned the hospital buildings along with the Railroad Station.

The Doolittle family also donated a portion of their family cemetery for Confederate soldiers who did not survive at the hospital. The Doolittle Confederate Cemetery still exists today.

As Paul Harvey said, "And now you know the rest of the story".
