There is only one week until our free tour of the 69th New York State Militia at the Battle of Bull Run. I have arrived Stateside, and will be spending this week researching Union Irish at the National Archives in Washington D.C. This weekend I have been on the trail of the 69th in the environs of the capital, and I am sharing a couple of those images below. If you are interested in coming along to the tour, it starts at the Stone Bridge at 9am on Saturday. For details check out Harry’s updates over at Bull Runnings, or the Facebook page for the tour here. As ever I will be concentrating on personal stories of the men and their families, and hope to share some that I have never aired before. Hopefully some of you can make it!
