Banner of Jasna Gora

A 17th C. Living History unit of Czarniecki Division and the Sienkiewicz Society

The Banner of Jasna Gora is a group of Polish 17th century re enactors affiliated with the Czarnecki Division.  Nominally based at the National  Shrine  of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown , Pennsylvania our members are from Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New York , New Jersey and Delaware and we take our name in honor of the defenders of the Jasna Gora Monastery during the 1655 Swedish "Deluge". Our members portray many of the types of characters one would meet in the 17th century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from Haughty Schlatza and their ladies to clever Chlopi (peasants) as well as allies and foes of the Republic. 

The mission of The Banner of Jasna Gora is to provide an opportunity for our members to learn about 17th Century Polish-Lithuanian history and culture while educating the public about a part of history that is almost unknown to most people through living history.  If you think you would be interested in learning about us and the period we portray please contact us.
