North Carolina Highland Regiment / 71st Highlanders
The North Carolina Highland Regiment is an 18th century revolutionary war re-enactment group depicting loyalists from the upper Cape Fear River valley. The unit also does a 71st Highlanders of Foot impression. Our group re-enacts revolutionary war battles along with living history in many different areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, as well as Virginia, Florida and Georgia. We are a family oriented non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on life and war during the 18th century. We participate in about 12 events throughout the year.

What being a re-enactor means
If you are interested in camping in the great outdoors this is the thing for you. We set up camp the afternoon before the event. Our food is cooked fresh over the campfire. Living quarters for the night are the tents. We have talks around the fire. Most events have dancing as well as other fun things to do during the day and night. We are a very Family oriented group.
