5th Annual Smithtown Historical Society
Civil War Program
May 16 - 18, 2008
For the third straight year Mother Nature rained down on Friday's school program. Despite the inclement weather we along with the 119th NY, the Rebels (9th, 30th, and 57th Virginia), the 10th NY Cavalry, and 'Doctor' Mike Callaghan entertained over 900 kids from all over Long Island. This year the 67th NY divided its forces in the face of superior numbers with three inside the Brush Barn and the remainder outside in camp. Private Lenihan (EJ Kuhlmann) and Sergeant Marshall (Dave Schnupp) stayed in camp all weekend until Sunday morning when the rest of returned for the Living History program open for the general public. We joined the 9th and 30th Virginia for a skirmish demonstration at midday that was soon followed by yet more rain. Will 2009 finally break this streak of lousy weather? Stay tuned...
