"Russ Richards and Historical Entertainment are an amazing asset. When we produced GETTYSBURG for the Discovery Channel, Russ was there with actors, costumes, props, and even found us the perfect locations -- it`s truly one-stop-shopping for historic productions. In addition, Russ and his staff were consumate professionals, cheerfully willing to handle any disaster or solve any problem, completely focused on getting the best possible production on the screen."
- Tim Evans, producer, GETTYSBURG
