The 23rd SC Infantry is a group enthusiasts that portray Confederate soldiers of the Civil War. We learn from and enjoy the ways of life of an era gone by. We are also the hosts for The Skirmish Of Gamble's Hotel held at The Columns in Florence, South Carolina.

Cannons Before The Battle

Our scholarship has changed a little.  We'll accept a history major from any of the Low Country schools.  You'll need a short biography with your plans for the future, a brief essay about why history is important to you, and your most recent college transcript.  It's that simple and you could receive $1000 towards your tuition.  We've done this several times before.  Click here to read more.

Did you know you could become part of the group, even if you didn't have an interest in reenacting? The Friends Of The 23rd is for people that want to be part of us, people that might just have an interest in history. Or people that like how our efforts support a scholarship at Francis Marion. Or folks that just want to help out. A $25 fee will buy our friendship. But wait! There’s more! You’ll also get two free passes to the event. That’s a $20 dollar value. Kidding aside, we do good things and have fun while we’re at it. You may want to be part of that, and you can. If you show up at the event, find your way to the Mercantile and ask one of the ladies about how you can join up.
