Family Friendly Reenacting

Family Friendly Reenacting & the Sesquicentennial of the War Between the States

The 150th anniversary (Sesquicentennial) of the Civil War or War Between the States will be here soon beginning in 2011 and our family-friendly,reenactment family-focused Civil War reenacting group is accepting both military and civilian recruits. Civilians may be of either gender and any age but must be clothed as per “every day wear” of the Civil War era. To reenact as soldiers gentlemen must be of valor and good character, at least 15 years of age, able to learn and able to take instruction. (The age requirements are slightly lower for musicians and standard bearers.)

We are able to train these gentlemen to join our large Arizona/Colorado/Virginia/Maryland contingent as soldiers of the 1st Virginia Infantry and 1st Minnesota Infantry, participating in historical reenactments and community service oriented educational living history days. We do have our own stock of uniforms, reproduction weaponry and accoutrements which allows us to train and involve a number of “new recruits” at any given time – on a first come, first serve basis. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be trained and take part in 150th anniversary of the Civil War battle reenactments and other living history and educational activities. If interested please send us a note telling us about yourself and requesting details. Also please see this page and this one too.
