We originally created The Reenactors Group because we are historical performers interested in ensuring safe practices and professionalism in our own work. We wanted an easy place to find reliable insurance and to form a group of individuals that want to preserve and protect history and its reenactment.

One of our main objectives was to secure an A++ rated insurance carrier that would provide reliable and consistent coverage at extremely affordable rates. CHECK!

Another goal was to make getting insurance so simple that we could spend less time doing paperwork and more time doing what we do best, performing. CHECK!

Finally, we wanted to share this insurance with other historical performers and reenactors committed to safety who need insurance and want the process to be simple because we believe in STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. CHECK!

The Reenactors Group is now a paid-membership based group of like-minded reenactors and performers. It is open to individuals and groups of all historical genres with its members committed to both safety and professionalism.

UPDATE: Recently our growing numbers of committed reenactors and performers has allowed The Reenactors Group to secure higher coverage limits at the same outstanding membership rates.
For just $39.95 a year members enjoy $2 million per occurrence and $5 million aggregate general commercial liability coverage with a unique excess medical line that covers the member personally.
This coverage is carried by EACH of our members and goes with you no matter what historical genre you represent or type of event in which you are participating. Let’s keep history alive and safe!

Unit History
A Brief History of Company I, Second US Cavalry

The Second United States Cavalry Regiment has a long and illustrious history, and today it is one of the oldest continuously serving units in the United States Army. The Second Cavalry began life as the Second Regiment of US Dragoons by Congressional Order on May 23, 1836. Today, the men ride Abrams tanks and Bradley AFV’s, and are known as the Second Armored Cavalry Regiment.

We quote the following, written in 1875 by one its former commanding officers, General Theophilus Rodenbaugh:
“For nearly half a century the Second Regiment United States Dragoons and its successor, the Second Cavalry has been closely identified with the growth and glory of the nation, and fills an honorable place in its history. Its colors have been borne with credit from the deadly swamps and burning sun of Florida to the snow capped peaks and grand canyons of Montana; from the Potomac to the Rio Grande; from the Arkansas to the Platte. No other public servants have more faithfully, cheerfully, and thoroughly performed their duty than the officers and soldiers of this proud and gallant corps. No matter if that duty lay in hunting the crafty Seminole through the almost trackless waste of the Everglades, or in the capture of a Mexican battery; the pursuit of Apaches among the defiles of the Rocky Mountains, or the prevention of civil war in Kansas; a march to Utah in midwinter, or watching the prophet in Salt Lake City; campaigning with McClellan on the Chickahominy, or with Meade upon the Rappahannock; raiding with Stoneman on the Peninsula or charging with Sheridan in the Shenandoah.”

This narrative could go on, but be it enough to say that the Second Cavalry Regiment’s service goes far beyond our Civil War, and we would like to report that the Regiment is today alive and well in its quarters at Fort Polk, Louisiana. As far as General Rodenbaugh’s narrative is concerned, if we take “campaigning with McClellan” out of the narrative, Company I of the Second was in the thick of our nation’s history for their first thirty years of existence, though the boys of Company I came to the Civil War a bit late, in December of 1862.

When the war commenced in April, 1861, Company I found itself campaigning with Company G of the Second in Taos, New Mexico, where they had the unpleasant duty of trying to pacify the Apaches, a thankless task that was not accomplished until the 1890s. Prior to this, the company found itself at war with the Seminoles in the 1830s and early 40s, then assigned to Fort Jesup in Louisiana until the hostilities with Mexico.

Weekly Reenactors Radio Broadcast. : This Week: Jeff Mach creator of the Steampunk worlds fair


jeff-mach-hat-spwf-2015

Jeff Mach

Jeff’s heart was captured at thirteen by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was fascinated by how much you could change the seemingly ordinary world of a movie theatre, and create a strange, wonderful new home for people whose interests were outside the norm. He’s dedicated his life to creating those places.

As a singer-songwriter, Jeff’s work ranges from wry takes on Steampunk, tales of Faeries and their kin, and what happens when you get locked inside a dream factory. As a playwright, Jeff’s plays and musicals tend to take familiar subjects and look at them from odd angles.

Jeff was born January 27th, 1975. He’s a practicing Pagan whose chief patron is P’tah, who is either the God who created all things, or the inventor of miniatures – depending on which mythology you read. He’s also dedicated to Coyote, Eris, and Dionysus. Visit Jeff’s website at: 2016.steampunkworldsfair.com
