Vienna, VA — Local civil war enthusiasts and historians have announced plans to produce a documentary on the Fairfax County involvement of Confederate Col. John Singleton Mosby, known as “the grey ghost” for his swift raids and his ability to get in and out of an area without being detected by the Union forces.
Don Hakenson, Chuck Mauro and Steve Sherman are leading the effort to issue the film entitled “Mosby’s Combat Operations in Fairfax County.”
Six Civil War historians will narrate the stories of Mosby’s combat operations at forty-six locations within Fairfax County, the filming to take place both on-site and in the studio. They are Eric Buckland, Tom Evans, Don Hakenson, Chuck Mauro, Stevan Meserve and Mayo Stuntz.
Chuck Mauro is directing the film and Bert Morgan, of BLM Productions, is the Assistant Director. Filming and post production work are being performed by Morgan.
On-site filming has been completed. Studio narration including over 100 historical images and an original soundtrack will continue through the spring of 2010.
As with any operation of this type, those interested in preserving the Mosby history and being of assistance in the documentary are being given an opportunity to contribute to the project.
Individuals who donate $50.00 or more and organizations that donate $200.00 or more will be acknowledged in the credits and receive a free DVD of the final production.
Checks may be made payable to Charles Mauro and sent to him at 2508 Iron Forge Road, Herndon, VA 20171, or to Don Hakenson, and sent to his address at 4708 Lillian Drive, Herndon, VA Alexandria, VA.
