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



2014

We kicked off as usual... with the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Westhampton Beach with the 9th Virginia. We visited several libraries this season including East Meadow Public Library which hosted a Smithsonian sponsored exhibit on Abraham Lincoln. We made our first and very successful trip to Maple Grove Cemetery in Kew Gardens, Queens that yielded three excellent videos from local Nick Biondo. As for the Sixth Annual Civil War Weekend at the Grange we completely outdid ourselves thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Josephine Foundation that allowed us to haul in artillery! In addition to the 150th Spotsylvania/Wilderness event in May, the big Sesquicentennial event was the 150th Anniversary of Cedar Creek and we ended the season at Remembrance Day in a different fashion with George Munkenbeck of Co. H, 14th Brooklyn delivering the speech at our memorial on Culp's Hill.
