Living History portion of the membership are both for Guys and Girls. The guys must have the appropriate uniform ans equipment. The girls have it a bit more flexible depending on the impression.
Do not worry about having ALL of the equipment listed on our uniforms page. But we will need to know the basis of your equipment thus far. We can help you along the way to guide you in making the correct purchases. Please know that living history does have a starting cost however there are low cost methods to look authentic and to still get your feet wet. The most important aspect is getting involved and participating in meetings to know what reenacting is all about. Membership cost are $20 for a individual per year and you will be responsible for any fees associated with specific events. We require that you be at least 18 years of age and active in the unit. You can not join without attended two unit function first. I must note that this group's focus is living history accuracy and the complete experience. Although we do participate in tactical reenactments it is not our core focus. Underage drinking and over indulging will not be tolerated at any time. It is required that your uniform correctly display the units patch and insignias. This is required in order to maintain a crisp authentic look while promoting the unit and the men who served under it.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to your participation in bringing the history of the 83rd Thunderbolt Division to life.
