Welcome to the website of The American Eagle Society (AES). Our aim is to offer an accurate and authentic portrayal of military and civilian participants in the American Civil War, 1861-1865.
Our activities consist of staging living history camps, drill and musketry displays, undertaking historical research, and reproducing uniforms, clothing and accoutrements of the period to the highest level of authenticity. A growing contingent of civilian re-enactors of both sexes add a further dimension to our activities.
Strong links are maintained with like-minded groups in continental Europe and the United States and members of the AES travel frequently to participate in events organised by our fellow enthusiasts.
