Do you want to be a part of a group that reenacts the life and battles of the Civil and Indian Wars? Do you want to learn how a company works and moves on the battlefield and how to serve in a battery of light and mobile artillery? Then you will want to join Venturing Crew 1872, the premiere Scout Living History unit.

The crew’s activities include Civil & Indian War reenactments complete with battles and Victorian dances. At scheduled Scouting Living History programs at historic forts and other historic sites, crew members participate in various drills and fatigue duties. We are also renown for our infamous “Round Rolling Parties.” The crew also promotes Longhorn Council camp programs where members will have an opportunity to serve as Chisholm Trail Program Staff.
