Recruiting Tent

This organization participates at historical reenactment events in the upper Midwest between May and October, and at commemorative anniversary events at major battle sites throughout the Southern states.  All qualified persons who wish to join this elite Confederate cavalry company are invited to contact us.  Since this Company portrays cavalry skirmishers who fought while unmounted, horswnership is not necessary for enlistment.

Membership is open to all eligible persons who fulfill the requirements and subscribe to the tenets of this organization, which may be referenced in the By-Laws that are published on this website.  Induction as a member is contingent upon acceptance vote of the Company.

The government has authorized payment of Two-Hundred Fifty Dollars Confederate States currency as an enlistment bounty to any qualified recruit, and an additional $400 CS for any horse or mule in fair condition.  All recruits are expected to furnish their own arms and equipment, for which they will receive $13 CS monthly pay.

Join us and let “Butler!” be your battle-cry!

Come at once, and come cheerfully, for I want no man in my command who has to be sent to his duty by a provost-marshal.  The work before us will be arduous, and will require brave hearts and willing hands.
Let no man falter or delay, for no time is to be lost.  Everyone must bring his horse and gun who can.  We ask only to meet the hireling legions of Lincoln.
The eyes of your brethren of the South are upon you.  Your gallant fellow citizens are flocking to our standard.  Then, greet them with the willing hands of fifty-thousand of Kentucky’s brave.  
Strike for the Green Graves of Your Sires!
Strike for Your Altars and Your Fires!
God, and Your Native Land.
