Welcome to the U.S. Marine Detachment, Brooklyn Navy Yard. We are a group of Civil War reenactors located in Southern California who portray not only the Marines of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, but also Marines deployed throughout the world who participated in small landing parties that raided the southern coast and rivers to the larger battles such as the 1st Battle of Bull Run/Manassas or the last major battle the Marines participated in, the battle of Fort Fisher. Our mission is to educate people on the lives of Marines during the Civil War.
