Thank you for taking the time to inquire about the activities of the 6th Pennsylvania Regiment. The 6th Pennsylvania Regiment is a group of people who have a common interest in the 18th Century and the American Revolution, and a genuine enjoyment in bringing it to life.
Membership in the 6th Pennsylvania Regiment is open to men and women from all walks of life, as individuals or entire families. Minimum age for members is 16 years unless a parent or guardian is also a member. Our members range in age from newborn to post-retirement age.
Those who wish to take part in a true "Living History" role, you may join as soldiers, musicians. campfollowers, or civilians.
Members pursue not only military aspects, but also trades of the late 18th Century. The military aspects include camping, uniforming, military drill, medical, and the use of firearms. The trades/civilian segment includes cooking, sewing, spinning, gun making, blacksmithing, carpentry, and is continually expanding. Your particular interest may take us into fields we have not yet explored. Members have constructed equipment ranging from tables and desks to cannons and pistols.
If you have an interest in the l8th Century history, call 215.264.6484 or email Doug Bender [d.k.Bender@comcast.net] or Tom Fitzpatrick [firstname.lastname@example.org]. We can usually find a way to include your area of interest.
.We meet at the Red Cross Building, Near Allentown International Airport. Allentown. Pennsylvania; every 2nd Wednesday of each month at 8:00 PM.
