Civil War Chess Set

If you’re a history buff and interested in the American Civil War, this is a chess set for you.  All the pieces are characters from the War Between the States.  Civil war generals will inspire you to think strategically as you plan your move, or just set it up for a wonderful display in your home.  Hand-cast, hand-painted of solid pewter.  Made in England.  Inlaid wooden board included  $7500 for the set.

Can you guess who the characters are?  What are their chess-related roles?  (King, knight, pawn, etc.)
