 Hello and warmest Southern greetings! This is the homepage for the 12th Virginia Infantry, Company B. We are American Civil War reenactors dedicated to providing a high degree of authenticity while honoring our ancestors.

Originally a militia unit based in Petersburg, Virginia, the Petersburg Grays was one of the military units to quickly come to the defense of our home state in 1861 when called upon. The modern-day 12th Virginia Infantry is a “progressive” reenactment unit that does a wide variety of events throughout the American East. Living history, battle reenactments, preservation events, all these are part of what we do.

Affiliated with “Longstreet’s Corps“, the 12th Virginia Infantry is a family-friendly unit that welcomes participation from our lady members, civilians, and long-distance members. Like to join us? Enlist now!

Thank you for visiting, and please check back often as this page is updated!

  1. Morning, I have owned the property at 625 Conduit Road, Colonial Heights for 10 plus years now and am interested in its former owner, whom I understand to be Col Richard H. Ryan, and the surrounding area, Ryan District. This property was constructed in 1927, so looking for any feedback on it history, builder etc. Hoping you could point me in the right place

    1. Hi Mike,
      Are you searching for details on the life of Colonial Richard H. Ryan, C.S.A?
