Smithtown Heritage Festival
September 18, 2005
The Smithtown Historical Society invited the local Civil War living history community once again for their annual Heritage Fall Festival. The 119th NY and 14th Brooklyn shared a decent sized green with ourselves for drilling but we faced stiff competition from other diversions on the grounds: folk musicians, buggy rides, old-time baseball, not to mention rival re-enactors from the Revolutionary War and WWII. On this day, we met a local Civil War historian and bid farewell to an Old Soldier.
