For the second year, the Smithtown Historical Society invited the local Civil War Re-enacting community to teach over 1,500 children the Civil War soldier's daily life. Participating were the 10th New York Cavalry, 9th Virginia, 30th Virginia, the 119th New York, the 57th Virginia, one Confederate surgeon, and one Confederate artillery piece (Jackson's Flyer Artillery). As for the 67th New York, we sent the largest delegation with nearly 10 men on our muster roll.
