9th Annual Smithtown Historical Society
Civil War Program

Smithtown, NY

May 18, 2012

This year we had the Best Weather Ever for the annual Smithtown Historical Society program and we enjoyed every ray of sunshine. The 67th NY fielded its largest contingent thus far: 16 men total. The usual suspects were in attendance: the 9th, 30th, and 57th Virginia infantry plus Dr. Mike Callaghan and the 10th NY Cavalry. Unfortunately, Jackson's Flying Artillery was not available so we had a second infantry skirmish to fill in their slot. We had a total of 1,300 kids visit and everyone was in a good mood thanks to the exceptional clime. If only we can count on this every year...
