The American Civil War is currently the most popular Time Period for Living History and Reenacting within the United States. In Las Vegas, and the rest of the Southwest, the trend would agree! We are able to provide the "early post war" impression of the 9th US for the Soldiers of the Old Fort program with this equipment and training as well.

We attend events around the southwest, and when we are in California, we fall in with units belonging to the American Civil War Society, Inc. which can be contacted at www.acws.net

If you live in Northern NV, please visit the "Nevada Civil War Volunteers" at www.nevadacivilwar.org

The majority of our local Union Infantry Reenactors serve in the 71st Pennsylvannia Volunteer Infantry, Company B. We choose this unit as it started out the Civil War under Senator Baker from California, and was known as the 1st California. So this gives us some relevance to the Southwest, and the Old Las Vegas Fort. You can find more information at their website: www.71stpenncob.org

 

You cannot have one side without the other!

Our local Confederate Infantry Reenactors serve in the 4th Texas Infantry, Company F. We choose this unit as its number was used both in the more notorious "Eastern Front" as part of Hood's Texas Brigade - but it also was used as part of the Sibley Brigade which launched from Texas and served on campaign in what is now New Mexico and Arizona. You can find more information at their website: www.4thtexascof.org

 

And last, and heard most often, we have (2) Artillery Batteries to choose from;

 

1) The Las Vegas Artillery Battery under Lieutenant Sean Wells & Sgt. Don Dolan. Starting with their 1:1 scale Mountain Howitzer, they portray both a Pennslyvannia Union unit, and a Florida Confederate unit, as needed to balance out events. While members do not have to provide the cannon - they are expected to help with the costs of operating it, and still need to provide their own Uniform and field gear over time. If you are interested, he can be reached at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 

2) The Battery B 1st New Jersey Light Artillery is a family oriented, living history organization that portrays a Federal Army artillery battery of the American Civil War. We attempt to recognize and honor the actual Battery B which served with the Army of the Potomac from 1861-1865. We are located in the Henderson, NV area. You can reach us through our Website.

 

In addition to Infantry, Artillery and Civilians, we presently have a collection of mounted Cav, and dismounted Cav that work with both sides. If you are interested in Yellow please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
