Pete. cead mile failte to The New Wild Geese. Can you share with fellow members the work of the 69th New York Volunteers Historical Association and Company A, and a bit about how you have come to explore the Irish experience this way?

Gerry, thank you for the welcome and I apologize for the short reply I am about to give.

Tomorrow morning, I am begining my travels from the banks of the Rappahannock to New York City to march with the 69th NYSV Historical Association ( on the web -  http://www.69thnysv.org/index.htm and Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/69th-NYSV-Historical-Association/193292204042708 ) to participate in the 252nd Annual New York City Saint Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday March 16.  I think this will be my seventh parade in New York. 

Andy Megill will be leading the contigent of over 100 Civil War Reenactors marching in this year's parade portraying the 69th New York State Volunteers also know as the 1st Regiment of the Irish Brigade.  We march with the County Waterford (the birthplace of the Civil War New York Irish Brigade Commander Thomas Francis Meagher) contingent in the parade and then join the 1/69th Infantry in their celebration of the 69th NY's Regimental Day at the Armory at Lexington Ave and 26th Street.

I promise to post a few pictures afterwards and will more fully respond to your request after I've returned to Virginia and recovered from the festivities.

Your Most Obedient Servant,

Peter M. Berezuk

Pete, what's the 69th and other reenactors portraying green-flag units preparing for the upcoming Gettysburg 150th reenactments? Might you and / or colleagues in Company A, or even some 'camp followers' keep us informed back here on the homefront about the days' events, sending photos, posts maybe even a little video? This is truly an auspicious occasion!

Gerry,

Between Friday June 28 and Sunday June 30 will be the Blue-Gray Alliance's 150th Anniversary Gettysburg Reenactment.  For more information those interested can visit - http://www.bluegraygettysburg.com/index.html - Spectator admission for the Blue-Gray Alliance Gettysburg Reenactment is $10 per day. 

On Friday June 28 between 8:30am and 11:30am the actions of July 1, 1863 will be recreated.  Yours truly will be leading a recreated 19th Indiana of the First Army Corps "Iron Brigade".

On Saturday June 29 between 2:00pm and 6:30pm the actions of July 2, 1863 will be recreated.  The 69th NYSV Historical Association as part of the 3rd United States Volunteer Regiment will be renacting the 28th MASS of the Second Army Corps "Irish Brigade" assault across the Wheatfield.

On Sunday June 30 between 12:30pm and 1:30pm the actions of Pickett's Charges on July 3, 1863 will be reenacted with units portraying the 69th Pennsylvania's defense of the stone wall on Cemetary Ridge and blunting the Rebel Assault at the High Water Mark of the Confederacy.

I fear that personally I am going to be to busy and in the moment to report on the activities.  But the option for those in the Mid-Atlantic region to come and see for themselves is there.

Your most obedient servant,

Peter M. Berezuk
