The 2nd Delaware Volunteer Infantry is one of the original reenactor units in Delaware, which has many members from Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, & southern New Jersey.

At the Battle of Antietam the 2nd Delaware Regiment was nicknamed the "Crazy Delawares" for their bravery and forward advance near the Bloody Lane. We portray one of the finest Units of all Union Infantry during the Civil War and are proud to represent them today.

The 2nd Delaware has maintained an admirable reputation and an excellent safety record which we practice . Each year we provide a “school of soldier” to teach the basics and develop your skills to participate.

We welcome new members who want a unique experience at living the history and develop a unit comradeship with others like you. Must enjoy camping, history and be in good physical condition.
