The Washington County Regiment of North Carolina Militia is a living history organization, dedicated to educating the public about the lives of the settlers and first peoples on the 18th frontier and to sharing the history of that portion of Western North Carolina which is now Northeast Tennessee. As members of the Washington County Regiment, we are proud to be united with Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area as the host living history organization, and are committed to serving the park and other historic sites in their common missions. We strive to provide a POSITIVE atmosphere for both the public and our members. We delight in being a QUALITY living history unit with historical accuracy, safety, and enjoyment at the top of our priorities list.
The purpose of this blog is to note the history of the group and the varied activities that the Regiment participates in, presented at the Sycamore Shoals Historic Area and the John and Landon Carter Mansion in Elizabethton, TN and other historic sites. Further, this blog site is a major communication forum between officers and troop and Sycamore Shoals State Historical Area personnel and Regiment.
We welcome potential members. If you have a passion for recreating life in the 18th century and would like information on membership in the Washington County Regiment or for further information about events, please contact the park:
