Joining the 9th Texas

9th Texas Infantry Regiment is a member of the Red River Battalion and one of the oldest reenacting groups in the South. With more than 40 active members, the 9th Texas forms Company F of the Red River Battalion at many major western theater events. Emphasis is placed on properly representing and experiencing life as a soldier in the 1860s. We pay close attention to clothing, lifestyles and military drill. If you are a male, age 16 or older, we would like to talk with you about joining our band of brothers. Fill out and mail an Enlistment Form or email our recruiter.
