For a bridge reglue, you will need to remove all the old glue from both guitar and bridge, as well as make sure these still make good contact over the entire gluing surface. Make sure the top and bridge are not warped or bowed, and all internal braces are still intact. Also, given the bridge "fell" off, it is a good idea to check for other glue deterioration.
If this guitar is worth something (seems likely), you may wish to have a luthier do the repair.
Good luck -- Greg

Hide glue has the drawback that it sets like lightning.
