Welcome to the home of Col. Bailey's 2nd Massachusetts Regiment. Step with us into the 18th Century

(or as close as we can get)

The modern Col. Bailey's 2nd Massachusetts Regiment was founded in 1974 and has been continually active up to the present day. We are dedicated to actively preserving the heritage of the United States of America through living history. We strive to preserve this heritage through extensive research and first-hand experience recreating the life and events of the American Revolutionary War period (1775 - 1783). Spanning a range from Quebec Canada, to Savannah Georgia, to London England, over the decades we have educated and entertained folks on the subject of 18th Century life in many ways. Our members range from children to adults, and like the original members, we also come from many walks of life.
