The 29th Ohio Historical Association was formed in 2009 by a group of seasoned re-enactors, desiring to honor the memory of those men from Summit County, Ohio who fought in the Civil War. As an association, we are more than just a group of re-enactors. Our events include not only reenactments, but also historical presentations about the history of the 29th OVI and educational presentations for homeschool groups, public schools, boy scouts and community groups. We have been involved in parades, memorials, monument dedications, and acted as color guard for local historical events. We enjoy studying and researching the history of the 29th, visiting historical sites, and touring battlefields. We would also like to consider doing GAR impressions.
The 29th Ohio Historical Association is a family orientated group encouraging those families who wish to participate together, either as re-enactors or historians. As re-enactors, we stress authenticity and strive to help those who are new to the hobby. As historians, we enjoy taking our families on excursions and learning more about those who fought in the Civil War.
