are a diverse group of men and women civil war re-enactors,
who share a common interest in the Civil War and history. Our
goal is to accurately recreate the camp life and existence of
the average soldier who fought for the Union in the Civil War.
We also portray civilians who supported the military in camp
We attend battle re-enactments,
living history events, parades and other civic and school activities
in Connecticut, New England, and throughout the USA.
We are dedicated to authentically
portraying the 79th in a fun and safe
We recognize this is a hobby as well as a life's passion and
we try to act accordingly. We strive to leave the "politics"
of reenacting to other groups.
Most of our members are
located in Connecticut and New York, but we have members from
6 different states. We continually strive to improve our impressions
through research, reading and new experiences.
