I love miniatures. I have to restrain myself so they don't take over my house -- because, being miniatures, they don't seem to take up space. Anyway, I found this on eBay. It's a chess piece (the Knight) in the shape of Confederate cavalry officer J.E.B. Stuart from the American Civil War, and it looks just like him! (Hard to see from my photo, though). I just had to geek out about this.
Here is the real J.E.B. Stuart, courtesy of Wikipedia in a public domain photo:
