The modern 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment began in 1992 as an idea to create a reenactment group that specializes in living history programs and battle reenactments, and provides a rallying point for battlefield preservation. The 1st Tennessee Infantry Regiment is a non-profit corporation with to educate the public by portraying a western Confederate infantry unit during the Civil War period. This includes all aspects of the period from camp life to loved ones left back home. The 1st also dedicates to bring attention to the need to preserve these sites for all to enjoy now and the future. With its non-profit status, the 1st Tennessee solicits contributions for preservation. Funds received go into the preservation fund. Members are also able to deduct their expenses for the 1st Tennessee. The 1st Tennessee is set up by reenactors for reenactors to help keep the battlefields around for all to enjoy. The 1st Tennessee has several types of memberships available to everyone, ranging from a military impression to just someone who wants to belong. Our goals are common to all our members. Please help us to continue the battle to preserve the memory of the brave men, both blue and gray, that fought and died for what they believed in.
