About The New River Rifles

tabspace.pngThe 24th VA / 83rd PA was formed in 1986 at the outset of the 125th Anniversary events. The 24th VA / 83rd PA , "New River Rifles" was charted in early 2010. Members have participated in major events from Gettysburg PA to Chickamagua GA and Shiloh TN to Charleston SC, staged Civil War Living History demonstrations at public schools and colleges, participated in Remembrance parades and other historic commemorations and worked as extras in Civil War movies like Lincoln, Glory, Gettysburg, Gods and Generals, and North and South.
