2nd Infantry Regiment United State Colored Troops Living History Association

 

ABOUT US

The 2nd Infantry Regiment United State Colored Troops Living History Association was established in partnership with the John G. Riley Center and Museum of African American History and Culture and the Natural Bridge Historical Society to represent the 2nd and 99th Regiments of the United States Colored Troops (U.S.C.T.) who fought at the Battle of Natural Bridge.  The story of these brave soldiers and the civilians that supported them had gone untold for more than the 33 years of reenacting the Battle of Natural Bridge.  The participation of the Association assures a more authentic and accurate account of the battle as it occurred on March 6, 1865.  Since its inception in February 2010, the Association has expanded its role to include year-round educational, cultural and historical programming.  Our membership reflects men, women and children, from various walks of life who have come together to promote the African-American perspective of the Civil War.
