Year in Review

The 2009 season kicked off with our first ever visit to the New York Historical Society to support their Grant & Lee exhibit. We had our back to back St. Patrick’s Day parades in March and returned to Neshaminy for their 20th Anniversary reenactment in April. We traveled to Gettysburg in July for the annual living history with great weather (for July). And as for anniversaries, this year marked the 145th for Cedar Creek that might’ve been a bigger event if not for threatening weather (actually, it wasn’t that bad). After a nine year absence, we returned to the American Festival at the Grange in June and after a long dry spell performed at a library with the Confederates and Cavalry at Sachem in Holbrook. Your Correspondent made a solo trip through Arizona, documenting little known Civil War sites. However, out of all our activities, the seminal event for the year was hosting for the very first time our own event christened the Civil War Weekend at the Grange. With the Town of Islip’s support and the help of our Confederate & Cavalry friends, we proved that we could stage our own affair for the local community.
