A stunning, historically accurate video that captures the Complete story of the U.S. Army — uniform by uniform
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Evolution of the United States Army Uniform, released by LionHeart FilmWorks and Historical Wardrobe has gone viral on YouTube.com with millions of views. The video tells the story of the army uniform all the way back to the 17th century when the first organized New England militias were formed that would later become the United States Army.
An ideal presentation for the 247th birthday of the United States Army! The U.S. Army was founded on 14 June 1775, when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of ten companies of expert riflemen to serve the United Colonies for one year to defeat the British and win the American Revolution.
This video presentation 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“This video is a combined effort by both teams in our quest and passion to create historical content with an almost obsessive level of historical accuracy and attention to detail,” says Hershberger.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 - including the foundation of what would later become the greatest fighting force the world has ever known - 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 conceived on the topic of historical U.S. military uniforms.
