Living History on Governors Island

New York, NY

August 12, 2006

The 67th NY, First Long Island made its first visit to the very underrated Governor's Island in New York Harbor. During the Civil War the island was used a POW camp for Confederate prisoners. Two of our own fell in with the 119th NY for the day. We had fantastic weather for mid August: warm, sunny, and not at all humid.
