Richmond, Virginia – The Evolution of the United States Army Uniform, released by LionHeart FilmWorks and Historical Wardrobe a few months ago is rapidly going viral with well over a million views. Thevideo tells the story of the army uniform all the way back to the 17th century when the first organized militias were formed that would later become the United States Army.
The film was created by LionHeart FilmWorks and its sister company Historical Wardrobe. According to Kevin R. Hershberger, founder and President of both companies, it was an ambitious project that no-one has ever attempted before in this manner.
“This video is a combined effort by both teams and companies in our quest and passion to create historical content with an almost obsessive level of historical accuracy and attention to detail,” says Hershberger. “We covered 400 years of history, so I think that’s something to be proud of!”
It gives the viewer a fascinating glimpse of 23 distinct styles of dress – the uniforms, weapons, and accoutrements – that were worn by the U.S. army soldier as far back as the 1620s. The video is actually the first in a series that LionHeart FilmWorks and Historical Wardrobe are planning on the topic of historical U.S. military uniforms.
Hershberger feels that the video may be particularly relevant this month because of Armed Forces Day on May 19th, which celebrates current members of the U.S. military, and Memorial Day on May 28th, which celebrates members of the U.S. military who have given their lives in service to the country.
