Photos of the 69th NY in Action
The 69th NYSV Historical Association is a non-profit living history organization founded in 1992 for the purpose of accurately portraying the life of the Irish Soldier in the Union Army to the general public. We are a family-friendly unit that emphasizes historical research and authenticity, safety, battalion drill, and battlefield tactics.
At present, many of our members are from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Members dress in authentic uniforms and equipment of the historical 69th NYSV, with a focus on the Regiment as it appeared in late 1862. The unit participates in a wide range of events from mainstream battle reenactments to immersive campaigning and living history encampments on the actual battlefields the 69th fought on.
