Bridesburg Memorial Day Parade
Braving the weatherman's threat of two inches of heavy rain, 16 men and 3 ladies of the
69th assembled in Bridesburg Philaelphia for the nation's oldest Memorial Day parade.
The luck of the Irish was with us as the skies cleared and we marched. Once again the
marching and firing 69th was greeted warmly by the crowds who cheered us on and
called for more musket fire. Three new members joined us for the event Memorial Day.
