Battle of New Market brings Hollywood to Lexington, VMI
Executive Producer Brandon Hogan said he was grateful to the residents of Lexington for tolerating the film crew as they attempt to turn the clocks back to the Civil War. Hogan admitted other recent historical films, like Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” and HBO’s “John Adams” helped open up Virginia to the likes of Hollywood. “There’s not one person on the production who doesn’t have some association with VMI,” Hogan said. “It’s a labor of love and these people are very specific about how this story is told.” Unlike other recent Civil War era films, “Field of Lost Shoes” is told completely from the perspective of the Confederacy. While films such as “Lincoln” and “Gods and Generals” featured prominent Confederate leaders in large roles, the movies focused on the perspective of Union leaders.
