Welcome to the homepage of the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment, Fort Laurens Detachment. The recreated 8th Pennsylvania was formed in 1974 and is a member unit of The Brigade of the American Revolution as well as the Continental Line. The unit has performed throughout the Midwest, Eastern and Southern United States, Canada, and England. The members portray the unit as it appeared in the Spring of 1779. The unit owns its own tentage and camp equipment, and supplies cartridges to its members for all unit sanctioned events. Authenticity is stressed, as is constant research. The 8th Pennsylvania welcomes new recruits that are anxious to accurately portray soldiers, musicians and distaff of the American Revolution.
