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,

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.
