Our Historic Impressions

    In reenacting each group, or individual, will choose a historical impression which they wish to portray at events, these can be Infantry, Artillery, Cavalry, Civilians, or any of the countless specialty impressions that existed during the conflict. For the members of the "Palmetto Riflemen & New York Zouaves," the following represent the units which we portray when going to events.

    For our Confederate impression we portray the members of the "Palmetto Riflemen" which served as Company C of the Palmetto Sharpshooters Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers. For our Federal Zouave impression we portray the "New York Zouaves" which served as Company H of the 17th New York Veteran Volunteer Infantry Regiment; and for our Regulation Federal impression the men of Company B of the 121st Ohio Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
