We are a family-based organization focused on teaching the history of the American Civil War period, 1861 - 1865, through hands-on experience.
From our Mission Statement: " The members strive to accurately portray the lifestyle of the period, with honor, dignity and respect to themselves, to each other and to those whom we honor. "
If you're interested in getting started in Civil War reenacting please plan to attend a drill day or attending an event to meet members of the company.
Learn the drill, live the life, wear the uniform or the period dress. It's active and physical, yet rewarding to spend a weekend in the 1860's.
It's still not too late to join us for the next campaign!
Whether you help through monetary donations, or membership and participation, we couldn't accomplish our education goals without the help of supporters like you.
Thank you for honoring those who "Gave the Last Full Measure".
