War of 1812 - 5th Maryland Volunteer Infantry - Completed

I finished these guys a couple of nights ago but had not done the basing till about an hour ago,.

I will have a second unit of these but with a blue "turban" rather than red - just for some variety - after all, if these chaps are the FIFTH infantry, there should be a First to Fourth in theory....!

The flag is - as far as I have been able to ascertain - the state flag of Maryland at the time - its fancier now and quartered with the family arms of the first governor or something like that - but from what I read, that is a relatively modern version IE early 20th century.
