The History Channel documentary, “Blood & Glory- The Civil War In Color is PREMIERING TONIGHT – and American Photo Colorizing is a part of it!

History Channel Black Logo 1

We’re very excited to be on the team that created colorized pictures for the first ever Civil War documentary to feature a wide selection of photos. This is going to change the way we look at History – especially the young people, who never grew up with Black & White.

Back on July 4th, 2002, American Photo Colorizing kicked off what has become a genre – Historic Photo Colorizing. We’ve waited 13 years for this moment – and to have our colorizing work included just blows us away.

Once again, “Blood & Glory – The Civil War In Color” airs tonight, April 7th and Tuesday, April 14th. Check your local cable provider for air times. Then gather the family around the TV for this exciting History Channel presentation.

As promised, here are some Civil War era colorizations from our own American Photo Colorizing photo gallery – similar to the ones we created for the History Channel’s groovy documentary!:
