The Gettysburg Civil War Battle  Reenactment is a very special and significant commemorative event for the reenactment community, the visitor, and the Gettysburg community. The eyes of the nation and the world are upon us. In order to promote event integrity and honor, and to respect your fellow reenactors and provide an accurate portrayal to the public, the organizers, and military command request your cooperation by heeding the following authenticity standards:

  1. All clothing must accurately represent the fashion and style of 1863, e.g., natural fibers, period cut and color.
  2. Modern plastic glasses frames are not permitted.
  3. No modern shoes and no sneakers.
  4. No specialty impressions without the approval of the event sponsors. This includes portrayals of Lee, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant, Clara Barton, etc. If you have any doubts, please ask.
  5. Women portraying soldiers in the ranks should make every reasonable effort to hide their gender. Hundreds, if not thousands, of women passed themselves off as men in order to serve as soldiers during the war—on both sides, and we will never know exactly how many did so because their disguises were so good. Honor them. If any Army or event volunteer (as above) determines the female gender at not less than 15 feet, that individual will be asked to leave the field/ranks.
  6. Hair should be worn as appropriate to 1863.
  7. As a compromise to modern safety, a minimum number of period MILITARY or Hospital Ice Angels (2-3) will be permitted on the battlefield for each authorized battalion. Each Ice Angel must be at least 16 years of age. Proper uniform will be required. Dresses for the ladies will not be allowed on the field.
  8. Do not wear any uniforms or insignia that would not have appeared at Gettysburg.
  9. The classic “campaigner” impression is suitable for this event. Shoes shall be worn! Failure to do so will result in removal from the event.
  10. A dirty musket is rarely, if ever, appropriate and may, in fact, constitute a safety violation.
  11. All anachronisms (cots, coolers, sweat pants, etc.) must be hidden inside tents at all times. Your camp is not only your reenactment home; but is also a significant living history experience for both your fellow reenactors and visitors.
  12. Tobacco use shall be confined to period products—pipes, cigars, snuff, chew or, in rare cases, filter-less cigarettes.
  13.  The event organizers, and respective military commanders, have final authority regarding authenticity issues.

Last Update:

Longstreet’s Corps Commander
Confederate Army Commander
Major General Terry Shelton

Major General Terry Shelton has enjoyed a lifelong passion for American Civil War military history. His reenacting career began in 1992 when he joined Purcell’s Battery of the Confederate Military Forces. Since General Shelton served on active duty in the US Army Infantry, he found his interest lay with that branch and in 1994 he organized and founded Company E, 1st Regiment Kentucky Volunteers and that unit quickly became part of Longstreet’s Corps. He led the 1st Kentucky for 22 years.

In 2000, General Shelton began commanding battalions at Corps events. He commanded a division at the 145th Gettysburg Anniversary. As the existing Corps commander was frequently elevated to overall confederate commander for events, General Shelton was asked to lead the Corps in his stead. Those events included the 150th Fredericksburg, 149th Spotsylvania.

In 2008, General Shelton was appointed overall commander and event organizer for the Annual Encampment and Reenactment at General J.E.B. Stuart’s birthplace Laurel Hill. An event he still commands today.

General Shelton has commanded regional events at Endview Planation, Old Fort, NC, Marion, NC and Wendell, NC.

In 2013, he was elected Longstreet’s Corps commander. In his first year, he was asked to be overall confederate commander at the 150th Blue – Gray Alliance Gettysburg. Later that year he served as a division commander for the 150th Chickamauga reenactment. The following year, General Shelton commanded the Thunder in the Valley event.

Note to new reenactors and people wanting to become reenactors: Unfortunately, we cannot be a clearinghouse for new reenactors and are not able to refer you to specific groups. We can refer you to periodicals such as The Civil War News, Camp Chase Gazette and Civil War Courier for notices from units seeking new members. Going to numerous civil war web sites and chat rooms would be another good source for reenactor information. The best option may be to go to some smaller reenactments or living history demonstrations and talk to unit members. Reenactors are normally very gracious in sharing their knowledge and experience. We strongly recommend that if you have not previously been a reenactor an event of this scope should probably not be your first event. Get involved with a group and cut your teeth on some smaller events.

Camp Safety

Company streets must be kept clear of all obstructions, camp gear, and furniture. The company streets will be used for formations, troop movements, and provide emergency access to the camps. Fire pits must be at the top and bottom of the tent rows with enough room to allow passage even if a crowd is around the fire pit.

Fire pits may be dug if the event rules allow, with the sod reserved for replacement when the fire pit is filled. All dug fire pits will be filled prior to the breaking of camp at the end of the event. No trash is to be burned in the fire pit. This includes empty or full cans or bottles. Straw and hay and other flammable substances are to be stored well away from any fire pit.

Mounted personnel are not authorized to travel through infantry camps. If, for some reason, this cannot be avoided, the mounted soldier should dismount and lead his mount until clear of the camp.

Vehicles are to be removed from the camp area after they are unloaded and moved to the designated parking area. Vehicles are not allowed in camp except when specifically authorized during emergency situation. Vehicles are allowed in camps after the reenactment based upon the posted rules of the event.

At the conclusion of each event, trash and unburned firewood shall be gathered and deposited in designated areas. All  unburned firewood shall be returned to the wood pile.

FAQ

Note to new reenactors and persons wanting to become reenactors.
Unfortunately, we cannot be a clearinghouse for new reenactors and are not able to refer you to specific groups. There is no central clearing house of units and some units come and go making maintenance of any such list become quickly outdated.

We can refer you to periodicals such as The Civil War News, Camp Chase Gazette and Civil War Courier for notices from units seeking new members. Going to numerous civil war web sites and chat rooms would be another good source for reenactor information. These periodicals all have websites available by using the search function on your web browser.

The best option may be to go to reenactments or living history demonstrations and talk to unit members. Reenactors are normally very gracious in sharing their knowledge and experience.

Independents that do not belong to an affiliated unit, upon acceptance of the registration, will be assigned to each army’s “provisional unit” established and overseen by U.S. and CSA command. We encourage reenactors to make every effort to affiliate with an organized unit and register as part of that unit, with the unit’s permission.

Civil War News: mail@civilwarnews.com or www.civilwarnews.com

The Civil War News runs a recruiting/calendar section in their January issue each year but that only includes units that submit information for recruiting ads. Some units will run recruiting ads in the classified section during the year in the regular issues. The Civil War News Website has links to reenactments and living history groups as well as to a site called Civil War Reenactors. By talking electronically to various groups you can usually get a helpful referral.

The specific location you want is: www.cwreenactors.com/recruits.htm

Keep in mind you cannot tell the geographic location of a reenactor unit based on the unit’s name. They could be the 14th Virginia and be based in New Jersey. This will require you to do some web surfing and visit chat rooms. Most unit sites will give the history about the original unit, which will aid you in learning some history while trying to identify a unit you may want to join. There are a few umbrella groups such as the Mifflin Guard and Army of Northern Virginia which many assist you in locating individual units to join.

You cannot just sign up to be a drummer boy in the reenactment. We require that you be an experienced reenactor having participated in some smaller events previously, meet all the requirements of the reenactor rules and be affiliated with a reenactor unit. There are also Drum and Fife Corps that are sometimes looking for active members.

There will be a US Military Camp, a CS Military Camp, and a US Military Dependants Camp for US military dependants. The camps are for registered reenactors only.

Registered Reenactors may camp on-site until Monday noon*

(See “Reenactor Updates” for camping rules and other detailed information.)

We promote this as a family event and feel that families should be able to stay together as much as possible however we leave the decision on dependants (civilians) camping in the military camps to the discretion of the individual unit commanders. Please address these issues with your unit commander prior to registering.

Event Civilian Policy:
The Dependant (Civilian) Camp at Gettysburg is intended and will be limited to military reenactors and their dependents who are not permitted to camp with the military as a matter of military unit policy. There is also a Living History Village for military and civilians that do an historically correct interpretation for the public such as washer woman, politician, seamstress, doctor etc. Registration in the Living History Area must be pre-approved by the Living History Coordinator. Both areas require period dress the entire weekend with no exception. If you are not affiliated with or a dependent of a military unit participant and are not a legitimate Living History Reenactor your registration cannot and will not be processed for this event.

You may park your RV/Motor-home in the Reenactor parking lot the same as any other truck, car or other vehicle used to travel to the event however camping in the reenactor parking lot is prohibited and enforced.You MAY NOT put out any awnings, lawn chairs, block any additional spaces, build fires, cook outdoors, etc. The vehicle will be placed in this parking lot as a parked vehicle.

No, there will not be a modern camp site at this year’s event. However, you can visit the South Central Pennsylvania Camping Website at www.pacamping.com/southcentral.htmfor local campsite availability.

We encourage you to try and affiliate with a unit that is coming for many logistical reasons that will benefit you and the organizers of the event. If you cannot, you will still be welcome at the event, but you will be assigned to a Provisional Brigade of either USA or CSA, depending how you register. Please use your unit and affiliation of your regular unit when registering if unable to affiliate with another unit.You will be assigned under a Provisional Brigade. Registering your dependants (civilians) with the military unit will insure less hassle in their registration process. Specify the number of dependants (civilians) camping in the military camp.
