Year in Review

Our season started the traditional way with the Westhampton Beach St. Patrick’s Day parade, and we got an early start with the school programs kicking off with Eagle Elementary in Medford. We returned to the Smithtown Historical Society school program (unfortunately in the rain) and another three day run at H.B. Thompson Middle School in Syosset. As for reenactments, we returned to the always reliable Neshaminy (in April) and Cedar Creek (in October). We passed on the big anniversary reenactment of the season (145th of First Manassas) to attend the annual reenactment at Old Bethpage in July in very sultry conditions. This year’s living history at Gettysburg was exceptional with eight companies (or roughly 150 men) camped at the Pennsylvania Monument. We visited new sites this season including Governor’s Island in NYC Harbor and Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia for living histories. Your Correspondent made two solo trips, one visiting Lincoln’s library, home, and tomb in Illinois in the Spring and fighting at the Battle of Perryville in Kentucky in the Fall. And we closed with Remembrance Day in Gettysburg and serving in a ceremony honoring a Long Island man killed in action.
