Scheduled for June 25th and the 26th, the Delaware County Historical Association will celebrate the return of the 144th New York State Volunteers as they form together once more to recognize historic battles.The 144th Regiment was the largest and best known regiment mustered in Delaware County during the Civil War, composed almost entirely of Delaware County residents. The regiment was formed during the summer of 1862 and was stationed at different locations throughout the war. The bloodiest battle in which it was involved was fought in South Carolina at the end of 1864 – Honey Hill. Co-hosted and sponsored by DCHA and the 144th New York Reenactment Group, the weekend events will include: three Civil War battlefield reenactments, living history demonstrations, cannon fire, military horses, drills, sutlers, the “Finger Lakes Fife & Drum Corps” and much more.  To find out more
