This week Throwback Thursday returns thirty years to March 15, 1989 - After spending over a week slogging through the rain and mud at the "Readville Camp" set in Savannah, Georgia, the Glory production crew returned to Rose Dhu Island to film another scene representing part of the battle of James Island segment. This was a welcome diversion for us and especially our soldier extras who were somewhat demoralized from all the time spent wearing the civilian costumes they dubbed slave clothes. Above and back in uniform actual sergeant in the modern U. S. Army Mark Jones stands to my left (the viewer's right) carrying the white regimental Massachusetts State colors during a break in the filming. One absolute plus of this time spent that day was that a still from the filming was used for many years on the back of first the Glory VHS tape and then the DVD below prominently featuring Yours Truly, circled in red!
Anyone else having (preferably) old photos, mementoes, or memorabilia related to Civil War travels, reenactments, etc. is welcome and encouraged to share them in this weekly thread!
