Our team was formed in 1962 at the beginning of the 100 anniversary of the War Between the States. We are modeled on the original First Regiment Engineers who served in the Army of Northern Virginia under General R.E. Lee.
Our equipment and uniforms are based on the confederate combat engineers recruited from every other branch.
Typically, we shoot our the N-SSA home range in Winchester VA.
