Living History at Smithtown Historical Society
Smithtown, NY
September 18, 2005

The Smithtown Historical Society invited us C.W. Re-enactors once again for their annual Fall Festival. The 119th NY and 14th Brooklyn shared a decent sized green with ourselves for drilling but we faced stiff competition from other diversions on the grounds: folk musicians, buggy rides, old-time baseball, not to mention rival re-enactors from the Revolutionary War and WWII. On this day we broke in batch of 'fresh fish' (new recruits), met a local C.W. historian, and bid farewell to an old soldier.
