Welcome to the Web Site of Hardees Corp of Reenactors.
We pride ourselves with years of experience as a progressive family oriented Organization. We honor and perpetuate the memory
of those who fought in the American Civil war.
Hardees Corp is a umbrella Organization of Independant Companies
from several States ,within the Division Commanded by Lieutenant General Michael Hardy, who has more than 25 years
of reenacting experience.
Greetings From Lieutenant
General R. M. Hardy:
In the Spring of 1993, I was serving our great cause as the captain of the 37th Alabama. At that
time my most trusted advisor came to me with the request to start a brigade. The brigade was born and became Hardy's Brigade
of Florida. From the beginning, we all agreed to have a mainstream, family-friendly organization. We strive to have high authenticity
standards and military protocol. We also strive for each company to be independent, to have its own identity and run the company
as the members see fit. These standards are still in place today.
Last year we saw the addition of the Southern Guard
Battalion under the leadership of Brigadier General Jerry Parsons. Under his excellent leadership this battalion has grown
to 23 units that cross GA., VA., TN., KY., and affiliates in PA. and the state of Washington.
Hardees Corp now
covers many states with a combined force of 48 units that include infantry, artillery, cavalry, and medical.
year my most trusted advisors have come to me with the idea of forming a division. This new organization will be called Hardee's
Corp. It is nationwide and still carries the same founding principles we started with. We extend membership invitations to
any groups that are family- oriented and which strive to be as authentic as possible.
We are not politically affiliated
with any other organization, nor do we tolerate “re-enactor” politics within our own organization. Our respective
units host scores of events across the South. We attend not only those events, but also other regional and national events.
We attend each event with a spirit of corporation and willingness to work with others.
We have come a long way in
15 years, and I am very proud of all our men and women.
I extend my thanks to all.
Lt. General R.M.
