Welcome to your resource for bugling during the American Civil War!  

Non-Bugler Signals Manuals now available!

Jan-Henrik Berger copper clairons are available (Key of C, Bb Pigtail crook) from Jan-Herik at!

He also has Authentic bugle cords/tassels.....all natural materials!

See the Resources page.

The "Functional Bugler Specification" is now available for downloading. Complete with pictures of acceptable period instruments, it's a 1 Mb Zipped MS Word file. You can e-mail us about getting a paper version mailed to you. This article is really a "How to be an ACW bugler" manual, without going into super detail or taking away from true buglers manuals. See the Resources page to download.

We are a group of reenactor buglers and bugling enthusiasts whose purpose is to increase the quantity, quality, and use of bugle calls in ACW reenacting up to historical (i.e. Authentic) levels. The quality of buglers and instruments is on the rise due to our grass roots efforts to organize a national Buglers group. If you have a reenacting event, we can get you a Brigade Bugler or Chief Bugler for the event. Contact us and we will try to get you a bugler.
