Our Story

 

WELCOME TO 1861 OUTFITTERS WHERE WE MAKE OUTDOOR ADVENTURE HISTORIC.

It all began one night while camping in Pennsylvania in a place called Gettysburg. That’s where our founder, a civil war reenactor, had the idea to create 1861 Outfitters. He noticed that where battles once took place there were now places for everyone to camp, fish, hike, and maybe learn a bit about our rich American heritage. It was this realization that inspired him to start a premium outdoor clothing brand - a brand that celebrates America’s Great Outdoors and the American Spirit.

 

OUR PLEDGE TO YOU

We pledge to do our part to protect our country’s historic places and national parks for future generations to enjoy. That’s why we donate a portion of the proceeds from every purchase to the American Battlefield Trust and National Park Foundation.
