If you're ready to experience history first-hand, contact us today.
Who Can Join?
You! Anyone is welcome to join us for an event. If you like it, you fit in, and you want to join up, ask about becoming a regular member. We have no restrictions based on age, gender, heritage or creed. Just be aware of the following:
Is It Safe?
Very. We're sticklers for safety. Reenactors are trained in safety rules and are required to demonstrate their understanding prior to participation. Yes, there will be a test! But don't worry, we're patient, diligent instructors with a lot of experience bringing new members up to speed. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
What's It Cost?
Company "G" doesn't charge membership dues and we can get you through your first event without spending a dime on uniform or equipment. Here are some other costs to consider:
Are Uniforms Expensive?
While reenacting isn't exactly cheap, it can be done on even a tight budget. "All-in" for a complete, battle-ready outfit (uniform, shoes, hat, rifle & accoutrements) will cost at least $1,000 and probably more.
The good news is, you don't have to do it all at once. The Legion can outfit you for your first couple of events. That way, you can try before you buy. Typically, new members spread purchases out, being "mostly there" at the end of their first season, and complete sometime in year two. In this way, reenacting ends up no more expensive than most hobbies.
More good news is that there's always used gear for sale. Nothing goes to waste in this hobby as many reenactors often prefer used items for that authentic, battle-worn look. Many frugal members of the Legion have saved hundreds while acquiring top quality used gear.
