6th North Carolina Regiment Reenactors
The 6th North Carolina Regiment Reenactors travel to historic sites in the eastern United States, primarily in the Carolinas and Virginia. We primarily participate in living history and battle reenactments, but also in parades, ceremonies, documentaries, movies, school demonstrations and honor guards. Members engage in stimulating conversations with each other and the visiting public, both educating and making Colonial America come alive. And we have fun doing it.
In the early 1970s, on the eve of the nation’s Bicentennial, the unit decided to recreate the 6th North Carolina Regiment that served in the Revolutionary War. The unit participated in over 1000 various Bicentennial events up and down the East Coast. In it’s entire history, the Regiment has participated in events in Mexico, Canada and England, and provided a living history camp at the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee. Members of the Regiment have traveled to New York to provide a 18th century dance exhibition at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
The Regiment is possibly the oldest continuing reeactment unit in the United States.
Currently, the main impression of the 6th North Carolina Regiment Reenactors is the Revolutionary War period Regiment. Officially called The North Carolina Historical Reenactment Society, a non-profit organization, we are known in reenacting as the 6th North Carolina Regiment. The Regiment is currently members of the Continental Line and the Carolina Brigade, allowing the unit to attend events all over the United States.
We visit historic sites throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, and beyond, where we reenact battles and demonstrate eighteenth century skills and camp life. We have fun together; our members would not devote so many financial and temporal resources to the hobby if we did not love living history.
We take historical reenacting very seriously and pride ourselves on the high quality of our interpretations of eighteenth century life. As reenactors, we share our historical knowledge with the public through these interpretations. In this manner, we can vividly explain the past, the everyday men and women who demanded freedom from colonial rule, and the social customs that defined their daily lives.
