The Society for the Historical Preservation of the Fourteenth Brooklyn (84th New York Infantry) is a non-profit, educational and historical corporation of the State of New Jersey. We have been granted tax exempt status by the United States government. Membership is not restricted to the State of New Jersey as we have organizational members internationally. As the name implies we are a society with two active branches. These are a historical society and an active, uniformed reenactment organization. First is:

The Society For The Historical Preservation . . .

This is the command and control element of our organization which maintains our Board of Directors and Trustees. The Society is a functioning historical society and is involved in aiding and assisting in the preservation of not only surviving physical relics of the 14th Regiment, New York State Militia, but textual and photographic information as well.

Society members include lineal descendents of Civil War era 14th Brooklyn soldiers, active and retired members from the many military commands with lineage to the original 14th plus students, scholars, professional and amateur historians as well as members of the general public with an interest in the 14th Regiment New York State Militia Infantry.

We are very pleased to have had direct membership participation in the reprint of our regimental history. Society members supplied many of the new and unpublished images of 14th Regiment NYSM soldiers for the new photographic section of this reprint.

Company C, 14th New York State Militia Infantry

Company C is our society's uniformed reenactment organization. It is comprised of many members of the society as well as individuals solely interested in reenacting. Since Company C maintains an active Civil War reenactment schedule in this area of the country, the greatest percentage of the company members are from the Eastern states.

Company C prides itself on the accuracy of it's reproduction uniforms! Our uniform standards are CAMPAIGNER GRADE / MUSEUM GRADE ONLY and thus homemade or sutler row purchased 14th Brooklyn uniforms will work in our company. Please go to PAGE THREE for specifics and in-depth information on our uniforms and equipment.

Company C collaborates with all reactivated 14th Brooklyn organizations but is most proud to note that we are the FIRST and ORIGINAL reactivated 14th New York State Militia organization. We are still going strong with forty three years of successful reenactment and living history programs to our credit! We must be doing something right!
