About the 9th Virginia
Civil War Reenacting and Living History

The 9th Virginia, Company C is a part of the 10th Battalion,

Army of Northern Virginia. Our company strives for a balance

between being as authentic as possible in our dress, demeanor,

equipment and activities and being a family-oriented organization.

The families of men-at-arms are invited to participate, and

individual civilian impressions of the Civil War period are also

encouraged. In our camp, we make certain concessions for the

inclusion of women and children. Participation is strictly optional

for any activity or event. We treat new members like family,

with guidance and friendship. New members receive the 9th’s

“New Recruit Guide”, which details uniform and accouterments

requirements as well as language of the 19th century and other

information helpful to the new reenactor.  All members and recruits

are kept informed of unit activities through our private & public website.


The 9th Virginia is a growing Company. We are comprised of professionals,

working class individuals and the self-employed.  The members of the recreated

9th are mainly from Long Island and southern New York. We attend events

principally in this area, but also venture to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Rhode Island,

and beyond.


Families, children, women, boys, girls, men, all races, all genders, all opinions.


The 9th Virginia wishes to take this space to honor our beloved Private Peter Scarabelli, taken at just 25 years of age. He was a character who brought joy to all in the reenacting community, as one of the original 9th Virginia members. He is featured in "Some Nights" (Music Video) shown on the media page.

 Civil War Reenacting is the hobby that thousands of American's participate in every weekend to live through and recreate the events that happened over 150 years ago.  We dress the part, and we live the part. We do it for the crowds, and we do it for ourselves.  We respect those who died, and we enjoy our time as well.
