Fort Moultrie's rear facade

Fort Moultrie 1860

Production Scrapbook

Over the many months spent creating a life-size 3D computer-graphic model of the peacetime Federal garrison which guarded the entrance into Charleston Harbor during the spring of 1860, just prior to its embroilment in the Secession Crisis and eruption of the Civil War, the personnel of Battlefields in Motion Ltd have produced over a thousand still images as they worked to refine Moultrie’s details and recapture some sense of its long-lost appearance. The fifty images offered here below constitute a representative sampling of that output, arranged chronologically so as to illustrate the progression of our project.

Beginning from a simple outline with basic building-blocks, the fort was moulded and physical features such as chimneys and artillery-pieces were painstakingly added, followed by layers of texturing such as stucco and painted surfaces, slate roofs, brick pathways, and even vegetation. Environmental elements such as realistic skies and sunlight helped to complete the visual illusion, once our recreation was finished. Visitors are welcome to individually download any images from our Scrapbook, as well as the pdf-file which contains all fifty.
