Great War Russian Reenacting Units
Russia... the soldiers, the soldiers on the Western Front having been, for the most part, forgotten by historians. These brave men are being honored by a few units now--doing their best to recreate the Russian Army as it SHOULD be remembered.
If you know of a website for a Great War reenacting unit not listed here, please contact me and we'll get it going.
|13th Battalion Black Watch Royal Highlanders of Canada (USA) --a living history group portraying The 13th Battalion Royal Highlanders of Canada during World War I. The unit is part of the Great War Historical Society, based in Southern California. The purpose of the group is to re-create, as much as possible, the conditions faced by soldiers during the First World War. The club holds public displays, provides living history lessons for schools, battle reenactments, and other educational venues. In addition to these public outings, the club holds two private events per year. It is the purpose of this organization to provide the public and club members with an environment to learn and experience the events and realities of WW I through non-traditional means. The History Channel is great and publications on the war are a wealth of information, but once you put on 60 pounds of equipment, stand knee deep in muck, and enjoy cold bully beef out of the tin on a damp chilly morning, the pictures on TV and the text from a book don't carry the weight they used to.|
