Mifflin Guard Living History Encampment
Gettysburg National Park
July 4 - 5, 2009

Mother Nature delivered the goods this year for our annual Living History on Gettysburg battlefield: sunny, dry, breezy, and with temps only in the 80s we could not have designed a better environment for ourselves. Unfortunately, the climate could not counter the far gloomier economy and so we fielded just over 80 men in lieu of the usual 180 in past years. Not coincidentally, the crowds of tourists taking advantage of our 'free' services were never greater. The 67th NY comprised Second Company along with men from the 12th NJ and the 1st and 2nd Pennsylvania Reserves. The National Park Service did not conduct their usual Ranger Walks however on Saturday we marched to the Wheatfield to assist the 61st NY in rededicating their monument.
