Every five years, the largest Civil War battlefield recreation in America occurs in
Gettysburg Pa. This year the 145th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg was
marked by the gathering of over 12,000 reenactors. The 69th Pa "Irish
Volunteers" formed two companies (D & H) to participate in the event. Joined by
comrades from California we participated in battles and camp life.
