This feels wrong for some reason, but I guess it isn’t. It’s not racist, as both sides are represented equally. The only message you could derive from it is that every race only keeps animals of the same color. In any case, it’s an interesting civilian twist on the old Civil War chess set. I used to collect chess sets, but I think I’ll let this one go…

sidenote: I took this photo at an antique store. The dimensions of the board are about 3′x 3′.
