"When comparing the strengths of black arts programs of the various armies of the world, The Naor Federation and Tithium, in their zenith, were without peer. " A graduate of Mr. Leon's School of Hair Design, Hieronymus Atchley is noted for his investigations into the whiskers of fighting men. His concise, seminal Shears of the Victorious, Shears of the Vanquished has been described as ..".a thoughtful inquiry into the intersection of martial symbolism and theory of cosmetology as historical forces shaping our world." (This according to D.V. Hughes, who credits Atchley for inspiring his own Valorous Labors of the Toilet). However, It would be wrong to pigeonhole Atchley as an author of "beards and battles" only. Atchley's interest in military history extends to historical reenactment too, and his activities in this field are also notable. As a participant in living history events of the American Civil War, Atchley is esteemed for his recreation of diseases associated with the period. As other reenactors practice their rebel yells, Atchley dedicates his hours to mastering the whooping cough. Though more Union and Confederate troops died from diseases than any other cause, Atchley is the only participant known to act out these infirmities. Among other ailments, he has staged rubella at Chancelorsville, dysentery at Little Round Top, and performs small pox annually during the Muskets & Memories weekend in Boscobel, Wisconsin. Atchley is currently working on a memoir of his involvement with living history, My Peaked Reenactments. He lives in Joel, Idaho with his two Yorkshire terriers, Garibaldi and Engels.
