Civil War History

Welcome to the 9th Virginia Cavalry, Company B

We are a non-profit organization striving to accurately portray an actively-campaigning Confederate cavalry unit in 1863. We are dedicated to preserving our country's history and honoring our ancestors who fought in the Civil War.

We are a family-oriented group of living historians based out of southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois attending events in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa. Some of our travels have taken us to Kansas, Missouri, Michigan, Montana, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Attached to our mounted unit, we have a dismounted contingent and McGregor's Battery Light Artillery. We also portray the cavalry during the 1830's as the 2nd US Dragoons, Civil War Western theatre as the 5th Georgia Cavalry, Civil War Trans-Mississippi theatre as the 4th Missouri Cavalry, Civil War Federal as the 3rd West Virginia Cavalry, Company M, as well as the Indian Wars as the 6th US Cavalry.

We welcome all to attend the many re-enactments we participate so that you may learn about an important part of our nations history. We also welcome you to join our group as participating is an excellent way to learn our history and build new friendships.
