istory Live is a very unique business. It began as an outgrowth of sponsoring
and setting up miniature dioramas of the Battle of Waterloo and other Napoleonic battles.
n the early 70's, I was asked
to display our 25 mm Wargame Army at a local Scottish-Highland Festival. It was so well received that we enlarged the
event each year and traveled further afield. In Memphis, TN's Exposition on "Napoleon" we set up a 15' X 25'
table using 11,000 figures-truly a magnificent sight. Since then the collection has more than doubled. Together with
the Wasatch Wargamers Club we have set up the diorama in other parts of Utah and Colorado. To this
display we have added a multi-image show, "Waterloo, the Legend",
using actors, music, sound effects, and slides of famous paintings telling the story of this most famous of all battles.
hose who have seen the display
and have also seen those in England at Waterloo and elsewhere have stated it is the finest and most detailed they have
seen. It is truly a work of art.
istory Live has erected booths to sell products in Williamsburg, VA; Chicago,
and San Francisco with conventions of the Napoleonic Society of America. We were in Las Vegas and Houston in the year
2000. The diorama was shown at the Long's Peak Scottish-Irish Festival, Estes Park, Colorado September 6th-9th,
