spacer involvement


There are many ways or scenarios, in which to get involved in the 13th NC, but the main way is to become involved in the infantry. We are always looking for new recruits willing to take the field and reenact the battles of the War Between The States. To maintain membership we require you attend a least three events  per year.

The largest cost is the first year of membership. This is the time to purchase of your Civil War uniform, and equipment. There are a variety of Sutlers (or suppliers) to choose from in obtaining these items. The 13th NC sometimes holds swap meets to get items at a drastically reduced cost, or in some cases, free! For more information on what items you will need, contact 1st Sgt Carl Howerton


Medical/Field Hospital
The 13th North Carolina Field Hospital visually brings the horrors of war to real life. Using real patients or mannequins we can make it seem like the real thing. As a member of the Civil War Surgeons Society, I have learned many techniques and applications to truthfully tell the story of 18th century medicine.

The Field Hospital has had demonstrations at Museum of the Confederacy, Gettysburg National Military park, Charlotte Museum of History, Reed Goldmine State Historic Site, Endview Plantation, Matthews NC, Davidson NC, Boone NC and others. Also, I have given demonstrations fo the Confederate Medical Department to elementary, middle and high schools, colleges, SCV Camps, historical societies and others. Please contact us if you would like a demonstration.

On the reenacting field we function as a first responder for reenactors under duress. Concealing our 21st century tools in period leather bags, we are the first to the soldier who might be suffering from heat exhaustion to minor burns. If you are interested in joing the medical dept contact us at: Major RD Hovey
