Civil War Reenactment Groups
The American Civil War, fought between 1861 and 1865, continues to live on in the form of living history reenactments. A Civil War Reenactment is the recreation of past battles for the education and entertainment of both spectators and hobbyists alike. Most reenactments will also have the opportunity to view the daily life of a soldier in camp. You can find civil war reenactments all over the country 12 months out of the year. Some of these historical recreations even take place on actual American Civil War battlefields.
The majority of reenactment organizations can be found along the U.S. east coast but can also be found all over the west coast and even internationally. Whether you are looking for a unit to join or to invite to your next event, the directory below will have what you are looking for. We hope you consider inviting a reenactment group to your next educational event.
Of all the historical reenactment organizations out there, American Civil War groups are some of the most prolific. Reenactors of both Confederate and Union forces can be found all over and are always looking for new members to take up arms. Be sure to visit their websites to learn about how you can join the cause and experience the Civil War or just catch up with one at the next event you attend.
If looking to dive into reenacting, the number one piece of advice is to speak to a unit before making purchases. Many units have loaner gear or special requirements. Check out our guide on How to Join a Reenactment Group.
