These pages are the online home of the re-created 3rd NY Regiment, Long Island Companies.

The 3rd NY Regiment is a nonprofit living history organization. Our members are a diverse group united by a common interest in American history, specifically the War of American Independance. The times and events we recreate begin in 1775 and continue through to the end of hostilities in 1783.

Our members reproduce the daily routine of Revolutionary War soldiers, wives, families and camp followers. We dress in period clothing and drill with reproduction firelocks just as in 1775.

Most events we participate in occur in the northeast United States. We have many friends on Long Island with whom we partner in bringing greater awareness to our neighbors of national and local history. Most of our members live on eastern Long Island but we have many friends throughout the northeast and beyond.
