The Brigade is a non-profit living history association dedicated to recreating the life and times of the common soldier of the American War for Independence, 1775-1783. Members represent elements of all the armies then involved: Continental, Militia, British, Loyalist, German, French, Spanish, and Native American forces plus civilian men, women and children.
Since 1962 the Brigade has been recreating a broad spectrum of the 18th Century. It’s activities include military encampments, tactical exercises, firelock shooting competitions, craft demonstrations and social activities. The Brigade also conducts annual schools and educational seminars featuring experts from several fields of 18th Century study.
The Brigade maintains a modest research library and publishes an educational journal, The Brigade Dispatch, a regularly scheduled newsletter, the Brigade Courier, and periodic instructional booklets and papers.
Membership is open to all persons.
