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.

The 5th New York Volunteer Infantry adopted and wore the exotic and period popular French Zouave uniform. The 1200 men and officers enlisting within days of the firing on Ft. Sumter were primarily from Manhattan, and the surrounding Burroughs. The 5th severed from April 1862, for a two year term. We accommodate campaigners and "car-paigners" with a slight emphasis toward campaigners. The 5th NY was assigned to the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Div., 5th Corps, Army of the Potomac.

We are a group of living historians based in Northern California. We portray the 28th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment Company B,  which fought in the American Civil War from 1861-1865.  Our goal is to study and understand the lives and experiences of the men of the 28th Massachusetts and to share that knowledge. We hope to honor those who fought and fell to preserve the Union.  This is a place for new and veteran reenactors to come together to learn about the history of the 28th Mass.  We are a family oriented unit. All are welcome.

U.S. STAFF CORPS

The U.S. Staff Corps is a contingent of interpretive reenactors within the Union Brigade of the American Civil War Association.  Its membership consists of  interpretive reenactors who present impressions of the Military Staff of the United States Army, serving in non-combative roles during the Civil War.  The primary purpose for which this group was organized was to represent the U.S. Army’s Military Staff at Civil War events, school days, and other private and public functions.   

Each member of the U.S. STAFF CORPS presents an impression of a commissioned officer, a non-commissioned officer, or an enlisted soldier attached to one of eight U.S. Staff Departments, which existed between the years 1861 and 1865, viz.: the Quartermaster Department, the Subsistence (Commissary) Department, the Medical Department, the Pay Department, the Corps of Engineers, the Corps of Topographical Engineers, the Ordinance Department, or the Chaplain Corps.
