About the ACWC

The Arizona Civil War Council (ACWC) is the oldest, continually serving reenactment group in the state of Arizona.  It was formed in 1983 and incorporated in 1986 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization.

We love to teach history, in classrooms, at reenactment events, and at multiple events across the country.  Members of the ACWC participate in several events throughout the year including reenactments, living history displays, parades, school lectures, cultural events, state park demonstrations, and have served as extras in movies and television shows.

Members of the ACWC participate as both Union and Confederate solders.  The three units include:

- Company D, 1st U.S. Infantry Regiment

- 6th Texas Infantry

- Civilians Auxiliary Guild

We welcome all new members who love history, love to teach it, camp in period tents, and re-live American history.
