2nd Wisconsin, Company H
Contact: Gary Manhart,
Welcome to the Company Street of Company H, Second Wisconsin, Company H, of the Second Wisconsin was reformed at the end of 1997 by a handful of people who wanted just a little more out of the reenacting hobby. It was decided that the company should portray 1862 when the Iron Brigade earned its' sobriquet and showed the Union Army how to fight (Not to mention the gaiters look really cool!). Because of this choice Company H has a distinct look out in California.If any of this appeals to you contact us and we will be sure to invite you out for a weekend.
