--NCWV Articles of Incorporation

The Nevada Civil War Volunteers is a non-profit formed in 1980 for the purpose of educating the public about the American Civil War. Each year NCWV hosts and participates in several historical re-enactments, living history events, parades and ceremonies across Nevada and California. The founders of NCWV believed firmly in the educational mission of a 501(c)3, and as a result NCWV appears in at least 12 schools every year, augmenting the Social Studies programs of each school in accordance with Nevada Department of Education Standards.
