The recreated British 64th Regiment of Foot is a national non-profit educational association--a 501(c)(3)) organization--which portrays the common life of the people of the late Colonial period and the American Revolution.
We put on pageants and reenactments for historic sites and communities. We provide educational living history programs. We are dedicated to improving the public understanding of the causes, events, outcome, and relevance of the American Revolution.
Both men and women are warmly invited to join us. You will find children in the camp also. We are family-oriented, and interpret the roles of the men, women, and children of the 18th Century Revolutionary War armies.
We are the oldest recreated British regiment in the U.S. (1959), and one of the largest. The British portrayal provides a deeper appreciation among Americans of the risks taken by our Founding Fathers in opposing not only the British Government, but also the finest professional military force of its day. We are a founding member of the British Brigade.
The 64th has attained widespread acclaim by its participation in events from Quebec to Florida. Our constant improvements in the authenticity of our kit and programs has kept us on the cutting edge of historic interpretation. This results in our having an outstanding reputation with historic sites.
The original 64th Regiment of Foot was formed in 1758, and arrived in Boston in 1768. The 64th never lost a battle, never lost its Colours, and likely saw more action than any other British regiment, from Boston to New York to Brandywine and Germantown (Philadelphia) to Charleston, SC, and more.
