This page is dedicated to helping you find Civil War reenactment units in your area. You can click on your state or the adjacent state/s to find units in your general area.
Most of the unit lists that I have seen give the regimental units by the states in which they were formed. However, today many reenactors live in states that weren’t even territories at the time, or they want to be in a Confederate unit while living in a northern state, or vice versa. Thus I have endeavored to list units where they say most of their members live, as this also helps with carpooling to drills and events.
For the novice, this will help you contact local Civil War reenactors, get more information, and “jine up.”
For the veteran or officers, it will help you to link to other units in your region for camaraderie and to enlarge your event participation.
Most reenactment groups have a primary impression that they usually do, such as Union or Confederate. However, since some states had units that fought on both sides of the war, causing some confusion when just seeing unit names, I shall use “[U]” and “[C]” to differentiate between units doing primarily Union or Confederate impressions. Many units will “switch sides” for certain events if there are not enough primary units of the opposition in attendance. The officers in your unit will inform you of this. A few units may do about an even split between Union and Confederate impressions and will get both “[U]” and “[C]”.
It is my desire to make this a comprehensive, yet current, resource for every active reenactment unit. For some of the units below I could not find a current website or contact info, so I’m not sure if they are still active. If you have that info, please leave it as a comment or on the Contact Me page. If you know of one that is not listed or a link that needs to be updated, please contact me and give me the proper information.
Because of the size of this page, I have had to break this into multiple pages. Please click on your state or adjacent state in the links below.
