Patchogue Civil War Monument Project
April 25, 2019
Erected in 1870, the Citizen Soldier Statue standing outside the American Legion Patchogue Post No.269 in Patchogue, LI started to lean backwards due to damage at the base. Made of zinc, the statue had to be dismantled and shipped to a repair shop in Ohio. Thanks to efforts by the local chapter of the Sons of Union Veterans (Richard J. Clark Post. 210) with a healthy assist from the 67th NY and the Village of Patchogue we were able to muster enough funds to repair and reinstall the memorial.
