The Cape Fear Living History Society is a living history organization dedicated to the authentic portrayal of the life of the common soldier in the Confederate and Union Army. We are a unit that emphasizes historical research and authenticity, safety, battalion drill and battlefield tactics, seeking to educate the public on how the Civil War soldier lived on a daily basis. Members dress in authentic uniforms and equipment, carry reproduction weapons, and camp in period issue tents. We regularly meet for battle reenactments, parades and living history events throughout the year. We are a family oriented organization made of men, women and children dedicated to preserving a part of our nation's history that forged it into the great country we know today. Most of our membership is made up of persons from Eastern North Carolina. The CFLHS are members of two of the largest and most distinguished reenacting organizations. Our Confederate affiliation is with the ANV and our Federal is with the NATIONAL REGIMENT. Our motto is THAT OF THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA "ESSE QUAM VIDERI" -- "TO BE, RATHER THAN TO SEEM"; we want to inscribe this on the minds of every person we meet in this hobby.

The CFLHS is made up of: two Infantry regiments, Company K, 18th Regiment North Carolina Troops and the 9th New Jersey (Jersey Muskrats) Volunteer Infantry. Plus a large number of men, women and children portraying period civilians.
