Our unit's philosophy is to constantly strive to improve its impression. As new information comes available, adjustments are made to our Uniform and Equipment Regulations. As marines, we not only train with light infantry tactics but light artillery as well. Our unit has a 10 pdr Tredgar Parrot Rifle that is used in live shoot competitions as well as reenactments. Although we impersonate a Confederate unit, we also galvanize when needed to present a more accurate impersonation of those men who fought during the War for Southern Independence. We realize that the marine impression is inappropriate for many events so we have adopted Co. K, 30th MS Infantry and Co. A, 13th US Infantry as our CS / US infantry impersonations.
We are a family oriented group with many of our wives and children involved in this hobby. If our unit sounds right for you, please feel free to contact us for more information.
