     We would like to thank you for your interest in the 1st Texas Lt. Artillery – Edgar’s Battery and the 3rd US Battery A.

     The purpose of our unit is to faithfully recreate through reenactment the dress, drill & lifestyle of artillery units operating during the Civil War and post war eras. We strive to perpetuate and share knowledge about this pivotal time in United States history. In addition, we stress authenticity in our activities through manner and dress as well as provide a safe, family oriented environment through which all who participate can have fun and fellowship. We participate in numerous activities including, living history events, field encampments, battle reenactments, and other civic activities throughout Arizona, Nevada and California.



Captain Mike Vander Maten
