You can lean the infantryman up against it. All the ground and the crushed leaves have been spray coated to fix the items in place so they won't fall off / out of the display base. There are two incredibly realistic canteens hanging on the barrier, plus a cartridge box (extras for a long campaign). On the ground is a large glass container for "spirits".
Also on the ground is a haversack, plus an extra percussion cap box, plus a spur the spur goes to Gen. Both soldiers are holding tin cups. The infantryman has on a dirty blanket roll, his belt, a knife, frame buckle on belt, a pair of black brogans (shoes) a bayonet in scabbard, a cartridge box on his left hip and a black slouch hat with band (about the most popular style of hate worn by Confederate infantrymen).
JEB Stuart, the most famous cavalryman of the Civil War, is wearing his famous plumed hat turned up on one side (the one on display in the Museum of the Confederacy). JEB has a yellow cavalry sash around his waist and he's wearing his saber in scabbard. He's got on his over-the-knee boots; popular with Confederate cavalry officers.

Stuart's uniform is not dirty; just as it came out of the box. I will include the box Stuart came in with this deal.
There is NO box for the infantryman; never had one for him. I will put all of the accouterments I can remove in a plastic zip-lock bag and then bubble-wrap the entire piece before putting it in a box. I highly recommend this piece for a Civil War Relic / Artifact room. It would also go well on a shelf along with Rebel relics, esp.
Dug bullets, bayonets, buckles, etc. This is NOT a child's toy but a realistic display piece for a lover of the South and the spirit of the Southern army (America's finest combat infantrymen), led by the likes of R. Lee, "Stonewall" Jackson, James Longstreet, A. Hill, Richard Ewell, Robert Rodes, Patrick Cleburne, Bedford Forrest, and many others.
