2006 Ceremony at Gettysburg
   Each year at Remembrance Day at Gettysburg in November a very special series
  of  ceremonies occur. In the early morning, the regiment assembles and marches
  to the Gettysburg Cemetery where 21 of our lads are buried. As the name of each
  soldier is called, their biography is read aloud and an individual soldier of the   
   reenactment unit is assigned to walk to the respective gravesite and place an Irish
  flag and transfer for their safekeeping a named medalion. The regiment then
   marches  to The Wall, and each year honors another company of the 69th. Each
    reenactor is given a bio-card for one of the soldiers in the company and represents
   that soldier  during the ceremony. This year, we  honored Company G, which
  stood at the left  flank of the regiment during Pickett's attack. Each year, a member
   who has shown dedication and duty to the regiment and to it's heritage receives
   the "Hugh Bradley  Award". This year's winner was long time comrade Rich
   Hickman. Finally, we participate each year in the Remembrance Day Parade
    through town and end the day with a social event that lasts long into the evening.
