ALL ABLE BODIED
MEN OF VIRGINIA
ARE CALLED UPON TO
8TH VIRGINIA INFANTRY
Capt. James Brown
We are an educational, historical, living-history unit.
The purpose of this organization is to preserve and
honor the memory of the Confederate soldier in general,
and the men of the 8th Virginia in particular. We do this
in several ways. The first and foremost is by
educating the public through the accurate portrayal of
the soldiers of the 8th Virginia. Our unit teaches the
public through a living history format during
reenactments and camp displays, and while
appropriate dedications and ceremonies. We are also
involved with preservation of local, state, and national
We follow the original soldiers in everything as much as
possible. This includes, but is not limited to,
accoutrements carried, drill, knowledge, life style, camp
life, uniforms, equipment, weapons, and attitudes.
We are a family oriented unit and invite you and your
family to come out and be a part of our unit.
We will get you started by loaning you the gear you will
need to try out reenacting.
