Civil War Sailor

The naval detachment is a branch of Ship's Company which has the mission of depicting the life and role of the sailor aboard the Constellation during the Civil War. We portray the regular navy and will develop our drill, appearance and conduct to reflect the highest traditions, professionalism and esprit de corps of the United States Navy.

We are living history custodians of a rare piece of American history. Due to our affiliation with the ship we have a relatively high profile for a living history group. The history of Ship's Company is filled with great achievement and it has a valued reputation known throughout the world. Members have served aboard the U.S.S. Constitution, the U.S. Brig Niagara, Barney's Barge and the H.M.S. Victory in Portsmouth, England. Our aim is to make our Civil War interpretation the model for all naval groups to emulate.

Participation in outside events is anticipated to be part of the regular schedule, but our primary responsibility is to our home ship.
