Living History | Education | Battlefield Preservation

The mission of today's Third Virginia Volunteer Infantry, a not-for-profit living history interpretive organization, is to promote battlefield preservation through public education.

Members of the Third Virginia accurately portray the life and times of the ordinary Southern soldier serving in General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia from 1861 through 1865. Alll clothing, equipment, weapons and accouterments are museum-quality reproductions and painstakingly researched for authenticity.

Our educational programs meet all of the required Virginia State SOL's relating to the American Civil War and, as a result, we work with many local school systems.

We gladly provide our services free of charge, but your tax deductible donations are always appreciated.

Please contact our officers for more information or to schedule an event.
