Welcome to the Second Colorado Living History Association located in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. This site serves as a recruiting and communication tool for our Living History Program for Civil War reenactors. We have a history of the Second Colorado Infantry for anyone interested in the history of our unit. We offer a wide variety of services to the public including:
Living History programs for Classroom or Public Festivities
Ceremonial Services for Patriotic days of observance
Battle Reenactment and Civil War themed events to educate the public.
We chose the 2nd Colorado because six companies of the regiment served in the Indian Territory during the summer and fall of 1863 and played an important role in the battles of Cabin Creek and Honey Springs, Oklahoma. They were also stationed for a time at Fort Gibson, Oklahoma and participated in skirmishes at Perryville (McAlester, OK) and Webber’s Falls.
This makes the regiment one of the most significant Union infantry units in our Oklahoma’s Civil War history. If you are looking for Civil War Living Historians for your Event, Patriotic Ceremony, or Educational program please email us.
