Company F of the 7th Michigan Cavalry (aka Troop D, 1st Nevada Cavalry) is a unit within the Nevada Civil War Volunteers in the Northern Nevada/California area. Our mission is to keep the tradition of the American Cavalryman alive. We focus on the glory years of the U.S. Cavalry from 1846-1946. We have served as the Nevada Governor's Mounted Honor Guard, provided funeral honor guards, and presented colors. We primarily participate in reenactments ranging from the Civil War all the way to World War II.
The Nevada Civil War Volunteers, is a non-profit 501c-3's based out of Northern Nevada and North/Central California. Many of our members compete in the military seat, a competition testing many military equestrian skills including saber combat, mounted shooting, horse jumping, and overall horsemanship. We also compete in cowboy mounted shooting with the Great Basin Pistoleers. Each year we ride in many parades throughout Northern Nevada and California. Our members also volunteer their time to teach American history to local schools. The most important thing we do is pay homage to the U.S. Cavalryman, and the hundreds of years old tradition of the American Soldier.
If horses charging, the beating of drums, the sound of the fife and the call of the bugle stir something in your soul, come join us!
