4th Annual Smithtown Historical Society
Civil War Program

Smithtown, NY

May 18 - 20, 2007

Once again, Rain forced us indoors for the annual school program at The Smithtown Historical Society. The kids were braver this year and we entertained 850 out of an expected 1,200. The 119th NY and 10th NY Cavalry rounded up the Union contingent while the 9th, 30th, and 57th Virginia plus the Surgeon from the 7th Louisiana represented the Rebellion. The weather was far better on Sunday when we had the rare pleasure of seeing former comrade-in-arms, John Ernest. Tragically, this would be our last meeting before his untimely death later the same week.
