Gettysburg July 1-3 2017
To commemorate the 154th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg 19
soldiers and 5 of our ladies journey to Gettysburg to face heat, storms and rebels.
July 1-3 saw the unit engage rebel reenactors in three major battles: The
breakthrough of the Perrin brigade, The Battle in the Wheatfield, and the attack on
Cushings cannons. The lads of the 69th performed heroically in all battles. On July 3
the 69th defended their position with multiple rifles per man as men in the rear
reloaded and passed guns forward to mow down attacking Confederate troops.
