145th Anniversary
of the Battle of Cedar Creek

Middletown, VA

October 17 - 18, 2009

For an anniversary year attendance was expected to be greater however the threatening weather kept numbers down to that of an 'normal' year. Fortunately, the foretasted washout never happened. We had light rain but not the freezing temperatures of previous years. The 67th NY had a Muster Roll of eight men and we combined forces with the 125th NY to form the First of the Mifflin Guard's four companies. As for anniversaries, Ed Marchan of the 125th celebrated his 80th birthday on the battlefield. We also celebrated the return of descendant Ed Yaw & his family and that of General Tony Daniels to the command of Union forces. We had a good run at the Sutlers with three of us getting photos done by Robert J. Szabo that will soon make their appearance on our CDV page.
