The Ninth New York Cavalry has been reactivated by a group of living historians and Civil War enthusiasts dedicated to the portrayal of the life of the Federal Horse Soldier. Our headquarters is in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada and our members come from all over the province of Ontario. We travel thousands of miles each year participating in living history encampments, re-enactments, and giving informative lectures throughout the year both in Ontario and the United States.
The 9th New York Cavalry Company A is a non-profit, non-charitable organization. We stress complete authenticity for all our troopers, in their uniforms, accoutrements and horse equipment.
Our members feel it an honour and a privilege to portray the most romantic and fabled profession of arms the world has ever known, the stuff legends are made of – the horse soldiers.
