Also included with this feature-film is an impressive commemorative documentary of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of New Market.
Our one-of-a-kind, high-definition re-enactment footage is the background to an epic spectacle. Featuring more than 5,000 re-enactors, as well as VMI Cadets and Alumni fighting on the "Field of Lost Shoes" -- no other docu-drama or film has placed you on the battlefield of New Market quite like this -- as well as telling the broader story of VMI's role during the Civil War.
From multi-award winning filmmaker Kevin R. Hershberger -- VMI Class of 1995 -- ("Wicked Spring","Medal of Honor","The Ultimate Civil War Series"), our cameras were embedded with the soldiers and Cadets on the original battlefield.
