Union Living History Units

Our Union ACW Cyber-Roster is UPDATED !!!!!!!

This area is to list the union units out there. This page will expand greatly to more sections as go along and add units.

The Union Army, more correctly, the Federal or U.S. Army, was the land force that fought for the United States during the American Civil War. It was also known as the Northern Army and the National Army. It consisted of the small "Regular Army" and was augmented by units supplied by the Northern states, these composed of volunteers as well as conscripts. The Union Army fought and eventually defeated the smaller Confederate States Army during the American Civil War which lasted from 1861 to 1865.


When the American Civil War began in April 1861, there were only 16,000 men in the regular U.S. Army, and of these, many were Southern officers who resigned their commissions and joined the Confederate States Army. At this time, the U.S. Army consisted of ten regiments of infantry,

four of artillery, two of cavalry, two of dragoons, and one of mounted infantry. The regiments were scattered widely. Of the 197 companies in the army, 179 occupied 79 isolated posts in the West, and the remaining 18 manned garrisons east of the Mississippi River, mostly along the Canadian border and on the Atlantic coast.

Raising an Army

With the secession of the Southern states, and with this drastic shortage of men in the army, President Abraham Lincoln called on the states to raise a force of 75,000 men for three months to put down the "insurrection." Lincoln's call forced the border states to choose sides, and four of these states then seceded, making the Confederacy eleven states strong. The war proved to be longer and more extensive than anyone North or South had expected, and on July 22, 1861, Congress authorized a volunteer army of 500,000 men The call for volunteers initially was easily met by patriotic Northerners, abolitionists, and even immigrants who enlisted for a steady income and meals. Over 10,000 Germans in New York and Pennsylvania immediately responded to Lincoln's call, and French immigrants were also quick to volunteer. As more men were needed, however, the number of volunteers fell and both money bounties and forced conscription had to be turned to. Nevertheless, between April 1861 and April 1865, at least two and a half million men served in the Union Army, of whom the majority were volunteers.

The ACWHRS, or American Civil War Historical Re-enacting Society, is a non-profit living history organization based in South Western Ontario, and is dedicated to preserving and exploring the memory of Canada's contribution to the War Between the States. Between 1861-1865, approximately 50,000 subjects of Her Majesty Queen Victoria left the Dominion of Canada to enlist in America's bloody civil conflict. The majority of these men served in the Union armed forces, enlisting in regiments organized in the northern border states. Four Canadians attained the rank of general in Union service, and twenty-nine were awarded the Medal of Honor. Some also enlisted to fight for the Confederacy, and so Canadians too fought brother against brother. Today very few Canadians know about this chapter in our history, or about the men whose bones rest in quiet cemeteries in Ontario, New York, Virginia, or in thousands of graves known only to God.

As living historians, or reenactors, we stage mock battles but, much more importantly, are dedicated to exploring and recreating the daily lives of soldiers and civilians from this era. We strive for a high degree of authenticity in our portrayals (we call them, impressions), and our members have amassed a high degree of knowledge and research. We frequently participate in events in the United States, and actively contribute to the cause of preserving America's battlefield heritage.

Members of the 13th US teach history in a whole new way.

We introduce the public to what it was like in that era through our military persona, drill, and customs.

Our travels take us to places where monumental events occurred. We encounter fascinating people who share our mutual interest in history; thus, making close connection as we relive a slower-paced world by "stepping back in time."  Members of the 13th US are part of a close-knit family where friends become comrades.  You quickly rely on one another and together we honor the memory of those soldiers who sacrificed for their country during America's most turbulent period.

All unit members follow authenticity guidelines initially set up when the unit was formed.  The primary goal of the 145th is to keep the spirit of reenacting alive by remembering why we reenact, and by reenacting together.  Many of the unit guidelines are similar to those from the Civil War.  Officers in the unit are appointed by higher ranking officers.  Unit NCO's hold their rank for a period of two years in the unit.  The commanding officer of the unit takes charge of all meetings, allowing all unit members to enjoy the reenacting hobby with having as few politics involved as possible.

Reactivated as a non-profit organization in the State of New Jersey in 1958, the battery strives to recreate itself as an authentic Civil War artillery unit.

Our favorite activity, skirmishing, comprises of team and individual competitive shooting sports with original and authentic reproductions of Civil War firearms.

Company B of the Bucktails is dedicated to preserving the memory of all those brave soldiers who fought for the Union, particularly the men from the Duncannon, Pennsylvania area. Company B strives to create authentic portrayals of the Civil War soldier and civilian. The unit participates in a multitude of Civil War related events such as battle reenactments, living histories, parades, demonstrations, and lectures. Members of the unit are available for presentations to various community and educational organizations free of charge. We are also actively involved in various Civil War preservation projects.

While we strive to be authentic, we are also a family oriented unit based out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We believe that a hobby or avocation as compelling as Civil War reenacting ought to be shared by the family and not just the men. Consequently we usually maintain two camps at events--one that is strictly military and one in the civilian area where all civilians camp as well as those soldiers who choose to camp with their families.

Company B was formed approximately 9 years ago with 9 men. It has continued a slow, gradual growth to where we now have close to 40 members, military and civilian. The core of the unit resides in the Central Pennsylvania area but we have members from  Pennsylvania (Philadelphia to Pittsburgh); Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Delaware. There is very limited activity in the Harrisburg area itself, so where you live isn't all that important. We are actively recruiting new members. We believe we are one of the best reenactment groups in the state and , as a member of the Mifflin Guard , belong to the best battalion sized unit in reenacting.
