General Regis de Trobriand Ceremony
at St. Ann's Church

Bayport, NY

May 12, 2012

At the invitation of the Sayville American Legion, the 67th NY participated in a ceremony honoring Major General Pierre Regis De Trobriand who is buried in the cemetery of Saint Ann's Church in Bayport. A French emigre, the General was the leader of the 38th and 55th New York Volunteer Infantry units and played a pivotal role at the Battle of Gettysburg as a Brigade Commander. With the help of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Sons of Union Veterans, Company H of the 14th Brooklyn, and the 10th New York Cavalry we honored the Genearl on a perfect Spring day using some rare manual of arms and maneuvers that are unique to these ceremonies. Local photographer, Tim Butler, also provided some excellent coverage of the event.
