Second Connecticut Volunteer Heavy Artillery
After three successful events in 2007, 2009 and 2011, the Second Connecticut will again host our Civil War reenactment weekend on August 24 - 25th, 2013 in Woodbury, Connecticut.
This year, we are excited to announce our NEW LOCATION at the Strong Preserve Park off Rt.6 on Scratchville Road, Woodbury, CT and is easily accessible via Exit 15 off I-84. (New Location is 1.5 miles up Rt.6 from old site.)
We are expecting over 350 reenactors to participate- from greater New England and points south.
This reenactment will have several features not usually found at events including several unique and elaborate battle scenarios. Not your usual 1863 battles! Ample and convenient reenactor parking will be available. Food Vendors and Period Sutlers will be on site.
Camp layouts will be garrison style with formal company streets and all of the amenities like wood, water and hay (for horses). We encourage all units to attend, as this is an event that will accommodate all levels of reenacting. Civilians, cadets, special impressions, etc., are all welcomed. The civilian town of Unity will be on site. Along with formal Union and Confederate camps, there is also limited space for those who wish to go campaign style.
Both the Town of Woodbury and the Second Connecticut are contributing considerable resources to ensure that this event will be a first-rate event. With the 150TH Anniversary cycle upon us, we expect a very high spectator attendance. This provides an excellent opportunity for CT and MA based units to recruit new members. Since this is one of the premier Civil War reenactments in New England this year, we encourage all of our reenacting brothers (and sisters) to take advantage of this unique event.
