Recreating the American Civil War Since 1968

The Southern Skirmish Association or SoSkAn as it is most commonly known was first inaugurated in June 1968 by a group of keen American Civil War enthusiasts and we are extremely proud of our continuous history as the longest established American Civil War Re-enactment and Living History Society in the United Kingdom.

Over the last 40 years the Association has continued to progress, we strive to accurately portray the men and women who gave their lives for their beliefs through those difficult American Civil War years of 1861 - 1865. Despite our professional attitude to our portrayals we are very much a family orientated organisation of people from all walks of life, all sharing a common interest in the events that created this fascinating period of history 150 years ago.

As a military based society our members are expected to participate in ALL things military. This is not just the battle or skirmish scenarios. They are properly trained to handle the weapons & equipment of the period using the correct drill and instruction manuals; take part in military camp life and act out scenarios when the public visits the camp.

Whether you are an event organiser, one of our many members, or are interested in joining SOSKAN, please feel free to view the site, and if you require more information, please complete one of our contact forms by clicking here or use the Contact Us tab at the top. We look forward to hearing from you!
