Everything You Always Wanted To Know Is Here!

The website "New England Civil War Events" exists to share information on Civil War reenacting here in New England both Union and Confederate.  Our goal is to provide information to both the novice and the experienced reenactor... and to those interested in getting started.  Not only would we hope to reach out to the reenacting community, we'd like to reach out to civic organizations, municipalities, patriotic commissions, etc to offer you guidance in bringing the history of the American Civil War to life!


Please never hesitate to contact us for recommendations on every aspect of engaging an individual living historian or a full unit in educating the public on the American Civil War. Whether for a living history event, a full battle reenactment, a parade or patriotic event, monument re-dedication or as a guest speaker, we are here to assist you.
