      Mission of the 18th Vermont Regiment

      The members of the non-profit, all volunteer unit are committed to promoting historical preservation and education related to the American Civil War of 1861-1865, with particular focus on the significant role that Vermont played in preserving the Union. This mission includes

      • Projects to preserve artifacts, battlefields, and collections involving Vermont units and personnel
      • The erection of monuments and markers honoring the sacrifice of those who served, both in military units and on the home front
      • Presentation of educational programs to encourage an awareness of Vermont’s important heritage of action in the War of the Rebellion
      • Supporting research in, as well as preservation of, records of the era, along with publication and dissemination of information

      Anyone with an interest in these matters is welcome to join the unit and participate in its activities. Some members dress as military or civilian figures of the era, but that is not a requirement and there is room in our ranks for everyone who would like to be involved.

      Become a member as an individual, a family, or an organization. A special student rate offers membership that is affordable even for younger recruits.
