Exactly thirty (!) years ago this week principal photography began for Glory in Savannah, Georgia, subject for this week's Throwback Thursday. These photos were made on Wednesday, February 15, 1989, in a Savannah suburb known as the Isle of Hope on an unseasonably hot day, the very first for our Background Company and others. (Filming had actually begun earlier in the week in downtown Savannah involving three of the principals and a crowd of mainly civilian extras, but this was the first for us.) Above, Yours Truly posing in front of one of the lovely old houses on a street chosen to represent Beaufort, S. C.; below my friend, compatriot, and fellow officer of the 54th Joseph Covais walking beside the drummers.

Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementoes, or memorabilia of travel, reenactments, etc. is welcome and encouraged to share them with us here in this weekly thread!
