The Civil War Civilians of Spottsylvania is a living history organization that has been created for the purpose of researching and recreating the non-military history of the Spotsylvania County area and the Central Virginia Region just prior, during, and following the American Civil War - 1857 to 1867. 


The stories of the local civilians merit the telling as much as the armies, both North and South, that moved across their land, through their communities, and impacted their daily lives.

We work to recreate these people and bring our personas to living history events so that we might begin to understand our ancestors' lives, and help others understand theirs as well. Please do not hesitate to contact us, and we hope to see you out there!
