Year in Review

The last full year of the Sesquicentennial was arguably the busiest in our regiment’s history. Not only did we perform at a record number of schools, but we also racked up no less than five Living Histories including the New York Historical Society, the Amityville Heritage Festival, Maple Grove Cemetery (in Queens), plus Sachem and East Meadow Public Libraries. Our annual Grange event in September received an unexpected and very welcome donation from John C. Dunphy Foundation. After running the event on our own dime for the last two years, we were able to give our fellow participating regiments a stipend and even had the funds to include the 6th NY Independent Battery, our first artillery! As for the road, in addition to our annual visits to Neshaminy and Remembrance Day, we attended two of the 150th anniversaries: Chancellorsville in May and Cedar Creek in October. Sadly, 2014 was darkened by the sudden passing of two of our comrades: Jerry Lane in March and one of our Founding Fathers, Brian Niessing, on Christmas Day.
