The growth of the United States Army Uniform, released by LionHeart FilmWorks and Ancient Wardrobe a couple of months ago is quickly going viral with well over a million views. Thevideo tells the story of this military uniform all the way back into the 17th century once the first organized militias were formed that could later develop into the United States Army.
The film was created by LionHeart FilmWorks and its sister company Historical Wardrobe. According to Kevin R. Hershberger, President and founder of the two firms, it was an ambitious endeavor that nobody has tried before in this fashion.
"This movie is a joint effort by both companies and teams in our pursuit and enthusiasm to produce historic content using an almost obsessive degree of historical accuracy and attention to detail," says Hershberger. "We covered 400 decades old, 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 with the U.S. military soldier as far back as the 1620s. The movie is really the first in a series that LionHeart FilmWorks and Historical Wardrobe are planning on the topic of ancient U.S. army uniforms.
Hershberger believes that the movie may be particularly relevant this month because of Armed Forces Day on May 19th, which observes current members of the U.S. army, and Memorial Day on May 28th, that celebrates members us army uniforms of the U.S. military who have given their lives in service to the country.
