The unit earned a reputation for their deadly accuracy and played a key role in several major battles, including the Battle of Gettysburg.
2nd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment Co. H
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.

Captain William Austine, Commanding
The 3rd U.S. Artillery Regiment (Regular Army) is a new unit of the Federal Brigade of the American Civil War Association (ACWA). Though most Civil War reenactment units display their reenacting skills on the field of battle, the 3rd U.S. Artillery Regiment presents impressions of artillery men who were garrisoned in a fortress that provided coastal defenses that protected San Francisco Harbor against the navy of the secessionist states in rebellion. Artillery training, reenactment events, and public cannon demonstrations utilize original Civil War cannon at Fort Point National Historic Site in San Francisco, where the historical 3rd U.S. Artillery Regiment was garrisoned throughout the course of the Civil War.
