Celebrating our 21st Year of Honor and Education!

Welcome to the web page for the Culpeper Minute Battalion. We are a group of re-enactors who strive to authentically present the heroic actions of the Culpeper County, Virginia Minutemen in the early years of the American War of Independence.  In addition to the Minute Battalion, our group also will adapt our impression to field at other quality events as well as fielding our alternate impression of Capt. William Preston's Company of Virginia Rangers for French and Indian War events.   Please feel free to examine our history and explore our photo gallery.
