Longstreet's Corps of Artillery
Brigadier General E. Porter Alexander
Longstreet's Corps of Artillery is one of the fastest growing artillery organizations in the reenacting hobby today. Our membership is drawn from a community of capable and enthusiastic men and women from many racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds from both north and south who have committed themselves to a mission of professionalism as living historians and accuracy in reenacting. We are not professional actors or actresses, but living historians from all walks of life who have a serious interest in authenticity, safety, and our duty to an accurate portrayal of an artillery corps during the period of the war between the states. We strive for historical accuracy in the re-creation of many of the roles individuals played during the war: civilian, soldier, musician, surgeon, nurse, cook, and clergy.
Additionally, we are committed to both the independence and individuality of member units, as this is also an accurate portrayal of the war period, and it embodies our dedication to democratic principles. Our goal is to provide a sound leadership and organizational structure for individual reenactors and units to enjoy the hobby and to prosper while honoring the memories of our Confederate and Union heros - Americans all.
This battalion uses both the drills of the NCWAA and the USFAA.
