Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania  
Living History
February 16-17, 2013
Once again a small but hardy group of
69th Pa men and women braved the cold
winter weather at Jim Thorpe Pa to drill,
march, fire weapons and teach the public
about our regiment and about the Civil War.
Eight soldiers and four of our ladies spent
the weekend of February 16-17 in the
pocono mountain town of Jim Thorpe at
WinterFest 2013 representing the unit.
