Historical Re-Enactors Capture Casper Life in the 1800s

Casper’s living historians portray the 6th U.S. Infantry during the years of 1855 through 1867.  The group was formed in 2012 in Wyoming and now stretches into Colorado, Texas and New Hampshire. They’re an organization for everyone – including families, friends and history enthusiasts alike – who are dedicated to demonstrating the life of soldiers, families and civilians during this time. They explore the history of America, both out on the frontier and during the Civil War.

“We love to laugh, have a great time, and remember those who came before and made this country what it is today,” said a re-enactor.

Currently, they participate in school parades, presentations, living history events, battle re-enactments, demonstrations and ceremonies, and they’re always looking for new and exciting events to add to their calendars.
