Jeff Davis (Independent) Guard
A Battalion of Independent Units
est. November 16, 2002
Lt. Colonel Larry McCluney, Commanding
The Jeff Davis Guard is an association of independent living history and reenactment organizations that was born of their common interests and goals. The association is dedicated to preserving an important part of our American history by reenacting, exhibiting, and otherwise portraying the period of the American Civil War; 1861 to 1865 and thereby educating this and future generations of this significant period in American history. It does so by primarily representing a typical large military unit of the period, which is not otherwise possible on the individual level. Our philosphy is to constantly strive to improve our impression as new research is done.
The goal of this organization shall be to form and recreate a Battalion of independent companies to participate in national and regional events. It is the hope that this battalion will eventually grow to brigade status consisting of Infantry, Artillery, Cavalry, and service units to participate in historical reenactments. The organization shall participate, through proper selection and member approval, in various events.
