Welcome to the home page of

"First at Vicksburg"

Houston, Texas

The only Federal Unit in the Houston area, the 13th seeks to accurately portray the western Federal Regular soldier from the 1860s. We participate in ten to twelve events per year, mostly in the Texas/Louisiana area, and sometimes go farther for large events. We welcome raw recruits and old campaigners. We stress safety and authenticity,yet still manage to have a good time recreating the War of the Rebellion. For more information, email us.

For those who are of Boy Scout persuasion, we are the host unit for Explorer Post 1862, a living history post. We attend most of the Colloneh Lodge Pow Wows (Order of the Arrow), and the Sam Houston Area Council Scout Show.
