OF CO. K, 67TH NY, FIRST LONG ISLAND VOLUNTEERS



2012

Like every year, we kicked off the season with the Westhampton Beach Saint Patrick's Day Parade (video provided by the 9th VA). One of our own traveled to the Western Theatre and captured the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh. In late April we attended the annual reenactment held at Neshaminy State Park. In May, at the invite of the American Legion we along with our friends in the Civil War Community paid tribute at the grave of General Regis De Trobriand who is buried just a few miles from our home at the Grange. We made a huge showing at the Smithtown Historical Society's annual school event and in September we pulled out all stops for the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. Our Fourth Annual Civil War Weekend at the Grange was clipped short by Hurricane Sandy at the end of October but we soldiered well on the Saturday... and we just missed our 15 minutes of fame, having to turn down an offer to appear in the hit video by Fun, Some Nights. We included it anyway as our friends were able to appear.
