An Invitation to Join

If you are a Law Enforcement Officer with an interest in American History, we think you would enjoy the Revolutionary War Reenacting hobby and recommend you explore your various options.  There are many considerations including:

  • Choosing sides (Crown or American forces)
  • Choosing the type of unit (line, ranger, light infantry, artillery, militia, dragoon, etc.)
  • Choosing a specific unit

 

Many of these choices will depend on what you want out of the hobby.  There are many excellent units on both the British and American sides.  Their requirements for membership and the impressions they present to the pubic vary greatly.  Some units focus on parades or have mandatory monthly meetings.  Other units focus on living history events or have no mandatory meetings.  Should you decide to participate in this hobby, choose the unit that suits your personal needs.

You are encouraged to either visit the unit link provided or email a specific officer listed below to ask for more information either about the unit or the hobby.
