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.

Following the fierce fighting at Chicamauga, we move to Mississippi to rest and refit for the next year. Gen. Bragg has lost Chattanooga and resigned his command. Gen. Johnston has been given command and is to oppose Maj. Gen. Sherman's advance towards Atlanta.
