Filming the Civil War with Historic Accuracy

For decades Robert Lee Hodge has delved into Civil War photography, period drawings, paintings, sculpture, and original items to understand what the Civil War looked like.  Hodge was a principal Civil War researcher at Time-Life Books for 5 years where he learned to comb through archives looking for unpublished information mostly related to the soldier experience.

It was with the 1998 book "Confederates in the Attic" by Tony Horwitz that he became a household name. Being a reenactor extraordinaire, Hodge spent a couple of years taking the Pulitzer prize-winning Horwitz on an eclectic and memorable Civil War tour-de-force of historic sites, and indoctrinating him into the Civil War culture. He became a major subject of the book and a photo of him was even used on the cover.

Hodge not also showed photos, paintings, drawings from the Civil War to illustrate his quest for "what it looked like“, but he also brought authentic uniforms and equipment for display and discussion.
