About the modern day Keystone Battery
The Keystone Battery of Pennsylvania is a group of dedicated civil war reenactors located in Ritzville, Washington. All personnel of the Keystone Battery are members of the Washington Civil War Association (WCWA). Our mission is:
- To lead by example and share through interaction, the highest regard for the strength and honor of the brave American Civil WarArtillery soldiers.
- To assume the role of leadership in the teaching of accurate United States Artillery history through the use of authentic materials, practices, and a recreated 19th century life style.
- To provide safe quality fun as a family-oriented group, while promoting education, instilling camaraderie and civility, and adhering to all by-laws, both WCWA's and our own.
By the way, we also fill the role of Burroughs Company of Tennessee Light Artillery, CSA, ("Rhett Artillery") as the occasion arises.
