We welcome new members and prior reenactors who are willing to meet our high but reasonable standards of performance and authenticity.

 We pride ourselves in presenting the best impression we can, consistent with a working man's income, and with some care in selection of your uniform and gear, you can too.

Civil War reenacting is not a cheap hobby and if you want to ride with us, you already know the cost of maintaining a horse, trailer, and tack.  We travel all around southern California.

Be prepared to ultimately drop a grand into your uniform, weapons, leathers, tent, and general accessories.  Don't buy anything without consulting a member of our unit first!  We can guide you to the best quality at the best price, and ultimately save you both cash and embarrassment at having wasted both time and money at some sutler's tent or online deals (Don't forget this is also a tax write off hobby). 

We are more of a family than anything else, with lasting friendships quickly forming.  The mock battles we fight at a reenactment can sometimes last more than an hour, the rest of the time we are in camp, enjoying our mutual comradeship and sharing food, music, and intrest in the Civil War history with our friends and the public.  At night we gather around the fire pit, having a few drinks.  Sometimes a guitar or banjo will come out.  There might be a barn dance. Every weekend is a different adventure.

So if you'd like to "Jine the Cavalry", drop us an email describing your interest and general background.
