We are a group of re-enactors who portray the Cavalry of the United States between the years of 1845 and 1890.

Our unit is most active in reenacting the War Between the States. Much of our activity consists of reenactments in the Southern California area.



Our website is here to offer information to interested parties and prospective members. Please feel free to take a look around, and drop us a note if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.



The Frontier Army of the West’s mission is to educate our youth and the general public through bringing American military and civilian history alive for the US-Mexican War, Civil War, and Indian War time periods. As a family friendly living history reenacting group, we accomplish this by portraying dismounted cavalry troopers and their families; dressing in time period correct clothing, using period correct equipment in a 19th century setting. The Frontier Army of the West preserves our American heritage for our youths by working with educators to present living history school programs, by participating in living history reenactments and timelines for community and charitable events, and by providing support to the movie and television industries in the making of historical documentaries.
