2nd and 4th U.S. Infantry “Sykes’ Regulars” Honoring the Proud Heritage and Traditions of the UNITED STATES ARMY And Those Who Served in its Ranks During the American Civil War 1861-1865

Our living history group encompasses the mindset of excellence in drill, discipline, and authenticity. The strict discipline of the modern unit has afforded us a proud reputation among the premier Federal units in the country. The result of this mindset is that the unit attracts those looking for a better reenacting experience as well as current and former members of the U.S. military. Our calendar consists of living history, reenactments and campaigner events, primarily located in the Mid-Atlantic States. The unit is very active in researching and documenting various aspects of civil war life, military manuals and unit history.
