Now and then, people write about us...

Here are some recent press articles about Ludington's Ride (one of the movies, one of the novels in the series, or the board game). The most current articles are at the top.

The Journal News (September 26, 2005)

Journal-News reporter Michael Risinit revisited our efforts to bring Sybil Ludington's story to the screen. This time, writer-producer Charles Welty met with him for a private discussion of the production while Mr. Welty was in Ludingtonville scouting locations for his movie.

Eagle Tribune (May 6, 2004)

Eagle-Tribune reporter Lois Marchand telephoned screenwriter Charles Welty for a private interview prior to the release of this story. She got almost everything right, except the release date of Ludington's Ride, which has not yet been set. Also, as of the posting of her article, the budget for the film had not been determined.

Wales on Sunday (January 25, 2004)

John Rhys-Davies in "Lord of the Rings"Wales on Sunday reporter Lucy Ballinger got everything right, except for one minor point. Yes, I would like to see that John Rhys-Davies plays the role of John Crane, the witty but tough tavern owner in all three of the Ludington's Ride films. Heck, I'd like to see Sigourney WeaverSigourney Weaver in the role of Tamar Crane, too! But we're a long way from shooting as of the date of Ms. Ballinger's posting. We haven't even approached these fine actors yet, or cast any of the other key roles. It seems Mr. Rhys-Davies said some things about Western civilization that aroused the ire of some followers of a certain religion from the East. But right or wrong, I felt Mr. Rhys-Davies had a right to express his opinion without being blacklisted.

The Journal News (October 5, 2003)

Journal-News reporter David McKay Wilson writes about a Revolutionary War re-enactment and cites local historian Vincent Dacquino's comments about the upcoming motion picture Ludington's Ride.

The Journal News (February 24, 2003)

Journal-News reporter Michael Risinit got some of the facts wrong (Mr. Welty visited the DAR Library in Washington, DC in February of 2001, not in 1991). But over all, it's a well-written and accurate piece.
