About the Stonewall Brigade
The Stonewall Brigade is a progressive/authentic campaigner reenacting group dedicated to portraying the common Confederate infantryman. We strive to present an authentic, research-based impression of the individual soldiers of the Civil War to serve as an educational resource for the public, to preserve and interpret history, and to honor the memory of those we portray. Although we are frequently called upon to portray a variety of Confederate units, our primary impression is of the original Stonewall Brigade. The Brigade itself serves as an umbrella organization encompassing two member companies, the 4th Virginia Infantry Company A and the 33rd Virginia Infantry Company H. Previous members include the 2nd Virginia Co. A, 2nd Virginia Co. E, 27th Virginia Co. C, 27th Virginia Co. D, 33rd Virginia Co. A, 33rd Virginia Co. E, the 5th Virginia Infantry Company A, and the Liberty Hall Fife and Drum Corps.
Of our two current member companies, the 4th Virginia is concentrated in the Shenandoah Valley, Maryland, and southern Pennsylvania. The 33rd Virginia is concentrated in Northern Virginia, particularly the Manassas and Leesburg areas, and stretches into central Virginia. Learn more about these units by clicking on the links below.
The Stonewall Brigade is a proud member of Civil War Historical Impressions, Inc. (CWHI). CWHI will uphold and preserve the highest standards of the reenacting community through “Living History” demonstrations, battle reenactments, memorial ceremonies, parades, and educational presentations. CWHI will support not only its membership, but the public as well to gain a more complete and thorough understanding of the men and women, both civilian and military during the War Between the States. Whenever possible, we will educate and encourage the public to the need for awareness regarding preservation of historically significant properties, cemeteries and monuments from this period in our nations history.
