Civil War and Spanish American War Reenactment

Pioneer Living History Museum

Phoenix, AZ

Dec 9-10, 2017


The Village Green and surrounding grounds will once again reverberate to the sound of cannon-fire. Soldiers in Blue and Gray will face off in life-and-death confrontation, hoping for victory, praying for the chance to live another day.


Staged by the AZ Civil War Council, re-enactors will descend on Pioneer to participate in battles and skirmishes during the two day event. In addition to 2 or 3 battles each day, visitors will be treated to short seminars illuminating the life of the average soldier during this epic time in our nation’s history. Learn about the weapons and their effectiveness. Walk into a Union or Confederate camp and chat with the men and women who had to suffer the privations and the primitive conditions it demanded.

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.
