About Us

The 20th South Carolina Volunteer Infantry and the 13th United States Infantry Regiments are composed of people who are dedicated to the accurate portrayal of the soldiers and civilians during the American Civil War. 

We are a non-profit organization operating under mutually agreed upon By-laws and governed by an elected staff drawn from our membership. As a registered member of the South Carolina Confederation of Historical Societies, we are headquartered Columbia, South Carolina. Our Living History services are also provided for the South Carolina State Museum, The National Park Service, Columbia Action Council's Autumn-Fest Celebration, numerous Lexington & Richland County Schools, and on occasion, even participated with the Motion Picture Industry in productions such as Gettysburg, North and South, and Class of '61.

 Many of our members have participated in anniversary battle re-enactments across the country, from Manassas, to Gettysburg, to the surrender at Appomattox. It is our ongoing desire to provide and strive for the most authentic impression possible for the period of 1861 to 1865; but most of all, to have fun through education and history.
