This Mew-seum in Pennsylvania Uses 5,000 Mini Cat Soldiers To Recreate American History

What do Gettysburg, Fort Sumter, ironclads and cats have in common? The Civil War Tails at the civil war Museum in Pennsylvania! Rebecca and Ruth Brown are twin sisters who run the Museum of the Civil War in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. the twist is that they are using thousands of miniature cat soldiers to recreate and depict key moments from the civil war. According to their website, the museum allows a bird's-eye view of the civil war battles recreated with the soldiers, the horses, and the cannons. The two sisters started making soldiers out of modeling clay when they were 11 years old and since they have always loved cats, so the first soldiers were cats. In uniform. With beards. Now, years later, they still think that's quirky and fun, and we all agree.

"Dirt" The Cat Is The Proud Mascot Of Nevada Railway Museum And His Unique Color Explains It All

The Nevada state railway museum offers an authentic train ride to Boulder city, on the original train track used to bring supplies to the Hoover Dam. But this authentic museum also has an "unofficial" official mascot - "Dirt" the cat, an unbeliebly beautiful cat who got his name after his unique fur color. For over 11 years now, the shop cat known as Dirt has wandered through the shops greeting visitors and shop crew alike.  Unlike some of the shop cats that have wandered these hallowed grounds in the past, Dirt is very personable and loves attention from whomever will give it to him.
