We are the OVCWA, (Ohio Valley Civil War Association). We are mostly a living history group but we do some reenacting also. We have a little of something for everybody! We have been called one of the best traveling museums in the country! Our unit consists of the 35th OVI, the 19th US Regular Inf., The 1st Ohio Battery C Light Artillery, Birge's Western Sharpshooters (or 66th Ill., whichever you prefer). We also have one of the best Signal Corp Detachments in the country (recently filmed for the new Gettysburg museum). And our Ladies Auxiliary is second to none.
We bring this all together to present to the public a little more than just infantry, this way they get a little better idea as to what each unit did during the war. We love to teach and show the public a different side of the war than they see in books and television. With this unit you can do any impression you want, as little or as much as you want.
We are mostly based out of southwest Ohio but we have members from Indiana and Michigan, some even as far away as Texas! We would love for you to come see us in Lebanon, Ohio on August 4th and 5th at the Glendower Museum to see what we are all about.
