Camp Morgan
at Old Bethpage Village Restoration

Old Bethpage, NY

July 20 - 21, 2002

The 119th NY invited all local units to their grounds at Old Bethpage Restoration Village to imitate an early war Union camp christened 'Camp Morgan'. They even succeeded in convincing units from off the Island to join in, such as the famous 5th New York (Duryee's Zouaves). No Rebels were present and therefore, no fighting. Nevertheless, despite the lack of action, we did our best to make the monotony of camp life entertaining for the paying public.
