The 53rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Inc. is a living history organization dedicated to the authentic portrayal of the life of the common soldier of the Union (Federal) Army during the Civil War. We emphasize historical research and authenticity, safety, company and battalion drill and battlefield tactics, seeking to educate the public about how the Federal Civil War soldier lived on a daily basis. Members dress in authentic uniforms and use authentic (yet reproduction) equipment, carry reproduction weapons, and camp in authentic tents. We regularly meet for battle reenactments, parades, and living history events throughout the year.
Company C, 53rd P.V.I. is based in eastern Pennsylvania and is a unit in good standing in the “National Regiment”.
