Smithtown Historical Society Civil War School Program

Smithtown, NY

May 18, 2018

This year's was the Smithtown Historical Society's 15th time at hosting us local Civil War Living Historians on the premises. All the Old Reliables were present: the 10th NY Cavalry, the 9th Virginia, the 30th Virginia, and the 57th Virginia. We fielded 15 men (and Nurse Janet). The forecast originally called for solid rain but Mother Nature showed mercy and we had only cloudy skies and cool temps... perfect for wool! The forecast scared off a good portion of the schools however we were all still very busy with those students possessing greater fortitude.
