THE MOST OUTSTANDING PROJECTS
THE 69TH PA "IRISH VOLUNTEERS"
Year in and year out the members of the 69th Pa reenacting organization participate
in a wide variety of battle reenactments, parades, "living history events" and
educational activity. Our membership has music programs, "school programs" and fund
raising projects to support our on going gravestone placement project.
Occasionally we engage in special projects which are outstanding historical programs.
We are proud of a number of these programs which we submit for your review here....
As of May 1, 2017 we have
researched and located the final
resting places of more than 550
men who served with the 69th Pa.
We have placed gravestones on the
unmarked graves of 78 men and have
held ceremonies on the gravesites
of another 41. Each year we honor
the graves of the 21 69th killed and
buried at Gettysburg National Military
Cemetery as we hold a ceremony at
our sacred stone wall at the "Copse
of Trees" - July 2- 3, 1863
