Civil War Reenactors




The 28th GA Co. G at the Resaca Battlefield

Welcome to the home page of The 28th Georgia / 123rd New York Volunteer Infantry! We are a group of American Civil War reenactors who portray both Company G of the 28th Georgia Volunteer Infantry, C.S.A., and Company D of the 123rd New York Volunteer Infantry, U.S.A. Our website is always under construction, so check back often, as we will be adding more things as we progress.

Founded in 1983, the 28th Georgia / 123rd New York is a non-profit organization devoted to keeping history alive through living histories, memorial services, parades, and battle reenactments of the War Between the States. We try to portray as accurately as possible the common, everyday soldier and civilian of the 1860s. We are a family-oriented group and feel that there is a place for everyone. We are not a hardcore unit, but we can adapt to whatever the situation calls for. We practice very strict blackpowder safety rules and are well-disciplined both on and off the field of battle.

We are garrisoned in Resaca, Georgia, and our members come from all over North Georgia and the Atlanta Metro area. We are members of the Georgia Division Reenactors Association, Inc. and our company is part of the Georgia Division Battalion. We normally do from 12-14 events per year, including living histories, and work very closely with the other companies within our battalion. All of our members are true historians and we are regularly invited by the State and National park services to give living history presentations to the public.

If you have the desire to learn more about the War Between the States, teach the public about what it was really like, and enjoy good fellowship around the campfire, then make the effort to contact us. Sit back and browse through our site. We hope you enjoy your visit and come back often.
