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



2013

This year marked the climax of the 150th Annviersaries with two trips to Gettysburg: the first in July for the double Gettysburg Reenactments held in late June, early July... and then in November for the marking of the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address at Remembrance Day. We also held our Fifth Annual Civil War Weekend at the Grange in September and made our debut at the Center Moriches Saint Patrick's Day Parade the day after our traditional march at Westhampton Beach. In November, we performed a Living History at Hillside Public Library with the 52nd New York and President Lincoln (Bob Costello). At this year's Smithtown Historical Society school program we recorded the performance of our horse soldier comrades, the 10th NY Cavalry.


Remembrance Day: 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address

Gettysburg, PA

November 23, 2013

PART ONE:
For this year's ceremony at our monument on Culp's Hill, we decided to commemorate this special anniversary by re-enacting part of 1888 dedication of the monument. We also place a wreath at the 65th NY monument as many of the veterans from the First Long Island reenlisted with them once they were formally mustered out in June 1864.


PART TWO:
Very cold this for this year's parade but not unbearable in the woolens. This was our first time marching with the U.S. Volunteers and with twenty men marching we formed our own Company for the first time. Another change for this special anniversary...Hardee Hats!
