About Us

Who we are

Our primary focus is to educate people about this incredibly important part of American history and to promote history.  All of our groups proceeds are used to support the reenactor participants of our event, to help charitable causes, and are reinvested back into the next years event. 


The Las Mariposas Civil War Group is a REGISTERED 501c3 nonprofit, volunteer organization, made up of a group of local Mariposa County citizens.

Working in partnership with A.C.W.A. (American Civil War Association) also a California corporation, we are both dedicated to the education of the public about the people and events of the Civil War. Our organizations present living history for the public, primarily in California, in many forms; including military and civilian encampments, battle reenactments, lectures and demonstrations, and school programs upon request

Our Goals......

 Firstly, to educate people about our nations' Civil War history, through true to life, live demonstrations and reenactments of this period.

Secondly, to enlighten people on the local Mariposa areas'  contribution to our nations' history during this time period, as well as the impact of the Civil War and its figures on Mariposa and Clifornia.

Thirdly, but equally as important, to provide the opportunity and  atmosphere, whereby families can enjoy being together, outdoors, in a clean, safe, and comfortable environment, while they learn about our nations' history.
