WELCOME FROM THE BURNT HICKORY GUARDS
a civil war living history group
We are a group of volunteers from all walks of life who are passionate about this turbulent time in our history. As a group, we aim to focus on presenting an authentic visual experience to help tell the story of a soldier's experience in Georgia during the Civil War. We will be interpreting Union and Confederate soldiers as well as civilians. Research of the people, places and times will be at the forefront of our interpretation.
To promote, preserve and protect the history of Georgia during the American Civil War between 1861-1865, through living history presentation.
To interpret the lives of individuals during this period through research and documentation.
