As the premier Engineer
reenacting company in the Southeast we welcome you to our website. We strive
to educate the public of the important role of the Engineers in the War
Between the States. Co B 3rd Regt has a large collection of period
instruments, books and maps, including a large archive and actual survey
instruments owned by Capt. Henry N. Pharr, who commanded our company during
the war that we display at reenactments and living histories throughout the
South. Members are available to speak at SCV camps, UDC chapters and schools
that would like to learn about Jed Hotchkiss ("Stonewall" Jackson's map
maker), Capt. Henry N. Pharr or Engineers in general. We also do a Federal
Topographical Engineer impression when needed.
Co B 3rd Regt is actively recruiting new
members and can offer a unique reenacting experience for new and experienced
reenactors. For more information, click

One of the most famous
mapmakers of the Civil War was Jedediah "Jed" Hotchkiss, a topographical
engineer on Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's staff. Some
historians believe that Hotchkiss' accurate maps ensured the success of
Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign.
