Who Are We?

We are Bankhead’s Battery, Company B, 1st Tennessee, Light Artillery Regiment, Civil War living history unit.


Bankhead’s Battery is an experienced, dedicated group of men and women artillerists actively portraying those honored soldiers who fought and sacrificed in the War for Southern Independence (commonly called the Civil War). The Battery participates in many anniversary battles and living histories and works closely with other reenacting groups. The Battery specializes in the safe, authentic operation of nineteenth century artillery field pieces and all of the officers have between 5 and 15 years experience each. The Battery drills at all events prior to the battle. A new member can start for less than $125.00 for a basic uniform and equipment.
