The 21st NC was reactivated in 1992 by a group of men who wanted to portray a regiment of an honorable unit from the northern piedmont of North Carolina. Their goal was to support the Sons of Confederate Veterans by doing grave marker dedications, living histories, battle re-enactments, and to educate the public about our honorable Confederate Ancestors.

The Historical 21st came out of six counties of the Piedmont to form the 11th NC Volunteers. The 11th was ordered to Danville, Virginia, where they were mustered into Confederate service with the unit designation of the 21st NCT. The men of the 21st were a fighting unit with battles from Winchester to Saylor's Creek.

If you are interested in portraying in an honorable unit, as a soldier or civilian, in a very family oriented unit, please contact us. Let us know if you have any questions and we will contact you immediately with help on how to get started with us. We do have active members from all over the state of North Carolina and some members who are associates who simply wanted to be a part of our unit because they had ancestors from the 21st.

As Always, In your service
Captain Rahlo Leonard, commanding
