We are an association consisting of individuals and families dedicated to pursuing and encouraging family oriented fun and participation in Civil War Reenacting while also educating and sharing history with our fellow citizens about the events surrounding the American Civil War.
The Battle Born Civil War Reenactors is a private, fully recognized 501-(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization in Northern Nevada and North Eastern California that uses Living History as means of helping the public gain a better understanding of the American Civil War and how it help shape the country we live in today. We are members of the Pacific Area Civil War Reenactors
Here one has the opportunity to recreate portions of the past in ways that help the spectator and participant alike to discover and learn more about their history and the people who lived it. Folks from all walks of life participate in the BBCWR. The reenactors don authentically reproduced clothing and uniforms, shoulder period muskets, cook over open fires, sleep in canvas tents and participate in battle reenactments and civilian life. Some even speak in the dialect of the era - we call it Living History.
The American Civil War, fought from 1861-1865, is a pivotal moment in the history of the United States. With a flash of the Officer's sword, followed by the command "Attention Company", you begin your journey back in time and experience life as a soldier of the American Civil War.
The military wing of the BBCWR is comprised of both Union and Confederate forces, including infantry, cavalry and artillery. Both the Union and Confederate Brigades are recreations of actual regiments and companies that fought in the American Civil War.
The Civilian and Non-Combatant Corps, attempts to show people how the civilian population lived while the war took place and the civilian social and medical organizations that supported the troops in the field.
