Second US Infantry (1858-1867)
A Civil War Re-enactment Group
Hi and welcome to my home page mainly dedicated to the Second US Infantry, the reenactment group I belong to. It will also contain other things as well.
I am a Corporal in the Unit, C Company of the 2nd US.
About the Company
- The company participates in about 12 events a year(about one a month)
- The company contains around 20 members and is constantly searching for more. For information on joining contact me at HinsonE@rocketmail.com.
- You must be 16 to carry a rifle in the company. As is the rules at many events. Younger boys are welcome as functional musicians and there parents are welcomed as well.
- We try to portray as realistically as possible the soldiers life of the Civil War period--Sleeping in tents, cooking over a fire, spending all day outside rain or shine. We of course make allowances for modern aminites such as medication, keeping foods refridgerated...stuff they didnt have to worry about that we do.
Something you may not have known about the Civil War.
