LaGrange Cadets will attend the 155th Gettysburg!

27 October 2017: Matthew Joe Mallory


LaGrange Cadets will be attending the 155th Battle of Gettysburg in 2018 as part of the 4th Alabama Infantry Regiment, a consolidation of units from the western theater portraying the esteemed regiment that helped to give "Stonewall" Jackson his name, and fought gallantly in the actual Battle of Gettysburg, well deserving of the only monument for Alabama troops at the battle.

The Second and Third Class Cadets will be placed as Corporals of the 4th Alabama Infantry, and help to spread awareness of LaGrange Military Academy for Reenactors. Stay tuned for more information.

Classes Suspended

It is with deep regret that we are suspending official classes until further notice. While we have received interest, we have discovered a lack of local interest which is vital to this program. As a result, we have been forced to "close our doors" much in the way the original school closed in 1862. 

We will reopen should local interest increase.

Matthew Joe Mallory,
Captain, Superintendent of LaGrange Military Academy for Reenactors

Enroll in the LaGrange Military Academy and study the tactics, history, and leadership skills necessary for running a Living History unit, while portraying the Cadets of this prestigious institution.


While our Faculty, Staff, and Cadets portray the Academy from 1857 to 1862, our Instructors will teach them history, tactics, literature, social etiquette, leadership skills, and more.


This program serves to pursue two goals;

  1. Preserving the history of LaGrange Military Academy from 1857 to 1862 by reenacting the daily life of the Cadets, Faculty, and Staff.
  2. Train the next generation of reenacting leaders in proper commands, tactics, and history.


If interested, then please contact Superintendent Matthew Joe Mallory for more information.


NOTE: This is not an accredited school, but rather a training program modeled after the LaGrange Military Academy of 1857-1862.
