Classic Battles & Classic Places
The 69th Pa Irish played a major role in a number of Civil War Battles. Early in the war, at the Battle of Glendale, the 69th counterattacked advancing rebel forces in the first successful bayonet charge of the Civil War. At Fredericksburg, the 69th attacked the rebel wall on Marye's Heights. At Gettysburg, the lads held the wall directly in the path of Pickett Charge. At the Battle of Spotsylvania, they broke through the "mule shoe" in a pre-dawn attack. At Appomattox, they cut off Lee's retreat route.Our yearly reenactments celebrate these historical events and other battles of the Civil War. Yearly, we return to the places where these "Sons of Erin"  fought and died.
