28th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry

Attleboro, MA

Based in New England, the recreated 28th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry is a non-profit Civil War living history organization founded in 1984 for the purpose of accurately portraying the life of the common soldier in the "Faugh a Ballagh" 4th Regiment of the legendary Irish Brigade. With more than two decades of service, it is one of the longest continuously fielding Civil War reenactment units in the Northeast. Members outfit themselves with authentic federal uniforms and equipment from the mid-war period, carry reproduction black powder weapons, and camp in period issue tents. Together, they participate in battle reenactments and living history events from March through October. Ultimately, the unit hopes to recruit enough men to portray the regiment as it appeared in mid-1863, with approximately 224 enlisted men and officers. The recreated 28th Massachusetts is currently comprised of more than 50 military members representing five of the six New England states. With a strong component of experienced reenactors in the ranks, it is a unit in which new recruits can learn a great deal about Civil War history and army life.
