Bridesburg Memorial Parade
The community of Bridesburg along the Delaware River in Philadelphia  
invited the 69th Pa to their Memorial Day Parade this year. Bridesburg
 was home to many Irish immigrants before the Civil War and was the   
home of the Bridesburg Arsenal which produced Civil War musket-rifles.
