Hip, hip, huzzah! This weekend, celebrate the reinstallation of our monumental painting, Return of the 69th (Irish) Regiment, N.Y.S.M. from the Seat of War, with the 69th New York State Volunteers Historical Association. The 69th NYSV, a troop of reenactors, portray the military unit largely comprising militiamen depicted in the 'great historical picture' now on display in the new North Gallery of our fourth-floor Henry Luce III Center. Take part in a Civil War drill, discover 19th-century army tools and equipment, and listen to stories about life on and off the battlefield for New Yorkers in the 1860s!
