The Battle of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania

Spotsylvania, VA

May 3 - 4, 2014

Highlights of this 150th Anniversary of Spotsylvania/Wilderness involved invigorating tactical maneuvers up, down, and around the forested hills near our camp and the storming of the muddy Rebel breast works following an emboldened dash across a knee high grassy field. On the second day, our assault of this Confederate clay bulwark resulted in a heroic struggle to protect the flag of the 69th Pennsylvania from a rapacious Rebel officer. We proudly rallied around a courageous Private from our beloved 67th New York Regiment and emerged victorious.
