Recruitment – Join the Regular Infantry!

The 4th U.S. is the only American Civil War Regular regiment in Europe and we are always looking for new members to either join the ranks or portray civilian life in camp. As you can see from our members page we are a growing regiment and welcome families as well as individuals joining up.

If you like what you’ve seen at an event, or what you’ve read here on this site, and you’d like to give American Civil War Reenacting a go here is a four step guide to getting involved:

  1. Fill in this form to be sent a free recruitment pack.
  2. Read the information in the pack and return the completed membership form.
  3. Choose your first event to start your voyage into the past. We will provide uniform and kit and, if you want the taste of battle*, bring you up to speed on basic drill required.
  4. Decide to make American Civil War your newest and best hobby (apparently this is optional…?).

If you’re still unsure why don’t you come to talk to us at an upcoming event or send us a question via our contact us form. We’ll aim to answer any questions as soon as we can.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the 4th U.S. family!

*For safety reasons battle participants must be over 14 years old. Them’s the rules.
