Gettysburg Remembrance Day 2022

Anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address
November 18-19, 2022

Lined Up At The Monument

Celebrating the 159th Anniversary of Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address”, thirty one members of the 69th Pa “Irish Volunteers” traveled to Gettysburg, Pa for two days of memorial services and fellowship. The busy two days began with a 69th Pa “Hospitality Suite” where members and friends gathered as they arrived in town and planned the schedule to come. That evening the 69th Band entertained a crowded saloon (The Reliance Mine Saloon) with several hours of Irish and Civil War tunes.

Saturday morning started early with a gathering of troops for a march to the 21 gravesites of men of the 69th killed and buried  in The National Cemetery.

Captain Michael Ernsberger presided as the biography of each of the 21 was read and  one by one medallions for each man were exchanged to be held for another year before a return to Gettysburg. The unit next marched to the 69th monument at the stone wall on the battlefield , where this year, Company C was honored as each  soldier carried a biographical soldier card  for the muster role called by 1st Sergeant Austin L’Heureux.
