Join Us!

   The West Virginia Reenactors Association is dedicated to the commemoration and preservation of West Virginia's rich Civil War heritage, and to encouraging the popular hobby of Civil War Reenacting within our State. Members of the WVRA portray the appearance and manners of typical citizens and soldiers of Western Virginia, both Union and Confederate, during the crucial period from 1861 to 1865.
   A tax-exempt, non-profit West Virginia Corporation, the WVRA strives for the highest standards of historical authenticity and accuracy in our impressions. We are very much a family-oriented group; we invite full and appropriate participation by all family members of any age and gender. Members of the WVRA share a serious concern with things like event safety and historical scholarship, but we still find a great deal of personal satisfaction and real enjoyment in sharing this extraordinary hobby with each other and the public.
   Through our appearances in historic battle reenactments of all kinds, in living histories, parades and other ceremonies, as well as visits to schools, clubs, and civic groups, we try to bring the valor and agony of West Virginia's birth during the Civil War to her modern citizens. Your personal or financial support will enable us to continue to bring vital and lively Civil War experiences to a wide variety of today's West Virginians.
   If you are interested in joining the WVRA, if you'd like more information about our activities, or if you would like to send a tax-deductible contribution to aid the living history efforts of this non-profit historical and educational corporation, you can write to:
