The reconstituted

Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps


The modern PRVC Battalion was founded in 2007 as an umbrella Civil War reenactment organization comprised of reenactment companies who desire to celebrate the memory and contributions of the PRVC to our national union, and honor the individual sacrifice of the soldiers of the original Pennsylvania Reserves (1861-1864). The PA Reserves Battalion is incorporated as the Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps, Inc. Most of the reenactment companies in the organization represent units of the original PRVC but that is not a requirement of membership. 

Member companies and their officers in most cases also are affliated with other reenactment organizations like the United States Volunteers (USV), National Regiment, Mifflin Guard, Federal Volunteers and others.  The PRVC Battalion (PRVC Inc.) under its command structure comes together to honor our heritage, participate in reenactments, parades and community events, as well as, sponsor drill weekends and living history events. 

The PRVC Inc. holds an annual business meeting in January/February, usually in Gettysburg, to elect officers and plan events. See our schedule of events on this website.


What does the PRVC Inc. do?


* Honors the Memory of the original soldiers of the Penna Reserves (also known as the 30th-44th Reg't PA Vol.) and their families. PRVC is working with Nat'l Park Service Living History Program at Gettysburg and Petersburg as well as the annual PRVC Memorial March around Little Roundtop. The PRVC Division Colors accurately reproduced by the PRVC now flies at Gettysburg events for the first time since 1863. The Colors of the 190th PVI --Penna Reserve Veterans Corps --are being reproduced by the PRVC for 1864-65 battles. 


* Supports its member units by providing opportunities to fully participate in regional and major reenactments. Events from Gettysburg and Cedar Creek to regional unit sponsored events with PRVC support.


* Advocates and assists planning for PRVC scenarios at major reenactments like Crawford's Charge at 154th and 155th Gettysburg.
