Revolutionary War Re-enactors in Connecticut  

Upcoming Re-enactment Event in Redding, Connecticut, many Connecticut Re-enactment regiments will be present.

2nd Connecticut Regiment, The Second Connecticut Regiment is a unit member of the Living History Association, the Connecticut Colony Military Association (CCMA) and the Continental Line, Northern Department. We portray a military hat company of the Second Connecticut Regiment. We do cover the entire Revolutionary War (1775-1783), but we especially portray the regiment as it was in the year 1779. The drill manual we use is von Steuben (taught to the regiment & the Continental Army in winter quarters at Valley Forge, PA., Winter 1777-1778).

5th Connecticut Regiment, In 1975, exactly 200 years after its first formation, a group of Ridgefield men received a charter from then Connecticut Governor Ellla Grasso to reform the 5th Ct. as an honorary unit. On October 30, 2004, the re-enactor unit celebrated its 30th anniversary as living monuments of the patriots who fought for independence in George Washington's army.

6th Connecticut Regiment, Currently the Regiment has some 30 members, consisting of a Captain, soldier-at-arms, a Regimental Surgeon, Surgeons mate, musicians, campfollowers and children. We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly unit. The Regiment became active in 1991 as an outgrowth of the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Starting as a Colour Guard for that Organization, the 6th, while maintaining close ties to the SAR, had become an Independent Unit by 1995. It was felt, at that time, that there must other ways the 6th could devote it's time and energy to the cause of educating the publick about the American Revolution. The 6th Connecticut, became in that year, a Living History Organization.

The 11th Regiment of Connecticut Militia--Established May 1995 to act as the Educational Outreach of the Branch, the Color Guard portrays the 11th Regiment of Connecticut Militia during the years 1775 through 1783. The Color Guard dresses in the correct period attire of hunting frocks as specified by General George Washington during the 1776 campaign. Membership in the Color Guard is open to any member of the General Israel Putnam Branch in good standing. We have appeared throughout New England, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

24th Connecticut Militia Regiment, 1st Independent Company (BAR) (CTL)--The 24th Connecticut Militia Regiment, Inc. is a recreated organized militia, as well as a non-profit organization composed of men and women who are deeply interested in preserving and recreating the life and times of the common people of the Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War era. Emphasis has been placed on the soldiers and women that served in the Army from the Wyoming Valley area of Connecticut. The dress or uniform of our unit is primarily militarized civilian clothing with a mixture of issued military items, as most of the soldiers were of the settlements in the Valley.

Butler's Rangers, Butler's Rangers was recreated in 1968 and became a proud member and supporter of the Brigade of the American Revolution. A few of our members have held various positions on the Brigade Board. We are also members of the British Brigade. Membership is open to any individual or family interested in joining. Our requirements are simply safety, authenticity and having a good time.

Historical Sketch of Putnam Phalanx - The command made its first bow to the public as a military body on the 22nd of December 1858, when a street parade was given. At this time no uniform had as yet been selected and the members of the battalion appeared in the regimentals of the Amoskeag Veterans which were generously loaned them by the Manchester organization. These uniforms were of the Continental style and very similar to those worn by the company today. At the close of the parade the Battalion was presented with an appropriate standard by the descendants of Israel Putnam, whose name the command bore.
