Who We Are:

The Boston Garrison is a community of reenactor units of the American Revolution that present the "Crown" point of view. Representing His Majesty's Forces along the East Coast of the United States and parts of Canada, the Garrison is composed of units that portray British Regulars, Loyalists, Hessians, and Native Allies. In addition to depicting men-at-arms, the members of these organizations also portray musicians, non-military personnel, and camp followers, thus presenting a more complete impression of life during the 1770's.

The Boston Garrison is committed to collaborating with other umbrella organizations, such as the Continental Line and the Brigade of the American Revolution, to ensure we provide a venue for everyone interested in Revolutionary War history regardless of gender, race, creed, or sexual preference. In the end, our main goal is to properly honor and portray those who fought and died for His Majesty 250 years ago.

Our Mission:

  • Foster communication and cooperation between reenactor units within the A.W.I. reenacting community.
  • Share and exchange ideas and research.
  • Recruit more people into the hobby.
  • Focus on portraying British Regulars, Hessians, Loyalists, and Native Allies.
  • Continually improve our impressions as Men-At-Arms, Musicians, Civilians, Camp Followers, and Non-military Personnel.
  • Support Living History Events on the east coast and parts of Canada, set during the American War for Independence.
  • Become a leading source of assistance for event planning and participation for the upcoming Semiquincentennial.
