The 16th Georgia is always seeking dedicated recruits; however, we advise that historical re-enacting is not for everyone.  Joining this endeavor is a decision that deserves considerable deliberation.  Depending on which phase of it you enter, it can be expensive, physically taxing and time consuming.  We do not say this to scare away potential participants, just to tell the truth.

     The spirit of the legendary War Between The States fighting unit known as the Sixteenth Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry was resurrected in 1982 by the formation of a re-enactment company by the same renowned title.  The 16th Georgia re-enactment organization has since its beginning been one of the most consistent groups of its kind, serving in recreated battles from Florida to Pennsylvania, in the 125th - 150th anniversary events and all the "hot spots in between".  The current version of the 16th Georgia is as large and active as any that has ever taken the field, having received a splendid influx of young, energetic recruits in recent years.  Like most Civil War re-enactment organizations, the 16th "galvanizes" or has both a Confederate and a Federal impression.  As Union soldiers, they portray Co. F of the 51st Pennsylvania Volunteers, as often as not.  Both portrayals are required by all members.

     Some time previous to the first Battle of Bull Run, Colonel Hartranft, who commanded a regiment in the three months' service, applied for, and received authority to recruit one for the three years' service.  Calling about him many of his old officers and men, the ranks of the new regiment were soon filled with a body rarely excelled for qualities essential to good soldiers.  With the exception of a few enlistments, companies A, C, D, F and I, were recruited in Montgomery County.
