14th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry

Unit Description:

Company G, Fourteenth Regiment Connecticut Volunteer Infantry is an insured 501 (c) 3 non-profit reenactment organization incorporated to educate the public on the lives of ordinary American citizens of 1861-1865 and preserve the history of the Civil War as it relates to the State of Connecticut. With members from all over Connecticut, individuals are encouraged to join our organization if they demonstrate an interest in the subject matter and a commitment for the organization's purpose supported by its goal of education, historic preservation and authenticity. What We Do Company G portrays Connecticut's most historied regiment of the Civil War that participated in every major battle in which the Army of the Potomac's Second Corps saw action from September 1862 through the end of the war. Members authentically portray Union Soldiers in both living histories and full battle reenactments. Battle reenactments are held both locally and on a much larger scale with thousands of reenactors in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Company G also prides itself on its record of historical preservation involvement. Our unit replaced the missing bronze plaques on both the 16th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry's and the General Mansfield monuments on the Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD. Both plaques were stolen and Company G reproduced and mounted the replacement plaques on the monuments to restore them to their original glory for future generations to come. The Fourteenth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry participates in the Adopt-A-Position Program at the National Military Park in Gettysburg, PA. This is a volunteer program in which our organization adopted the Fourteenth's monument at "The Angle" as well as their two monuments located on the Bliss Barn and House site with members making the semi-annual pilgrimage to maintain these sites. Members of our organization have participated in History Channel programs, as well as the filming of the movies "Glory", "Gettysburg" and "Gods and Generals" and are looking forward to working on the sequel "Last Full Measure" when it goes into production.
