WHO WE ARE
The Texas Civil War Living History Institute is an organization dedicated to improving America’s understanding of its Civil War through living history and reenactment. Our approach focuses on providing professional-grade, immersive living history experiences at historic sites and in communities around the region and across the nation. In this authentic historical environment, both our members and our audience gain a new appreciation for our nation’s defining conflict and its impact on our lives today. Our volunteer staff strives to provide a safe, exciting, and enriching program for our participants, as well as an historically accurate, immersive, and eye-opening experience for our audiences.
The phrase "A New Birth of Freedom" comes from Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address.
Educate, inspire, and engage Americans through immersive living history experiences.
An America that fully realizes her new birth of freedom based on a meaningful personal connection between her citizens and the epic and tragic events of the Civil War that made it possible.
