Northport Middle School

Northport, NY

May 3, 2012

For this school program, the 10th New York Cavalry returned to the field under its new commander, Frank Bradford, and he invited the 67th New York, 30th Virginia, Dr. Michael Callaghan (7th Louisiana), and Patrick Falci (General A.P. Hill) to join them. It was gray and a little chilly but thankfully there was no rain. And our Sergeant Patrick O'Reilly (Brian Niessing) unveiled his period telegraph office for the first tiem and it was an unexpected hit with the kids.
