For the Genesee Country Village and Museum Civil War event, we have decided to put together a battalion made up entirely of New York State “Excelsior” Jackets.
The date for the event is July 14-16, 2017.
Currently, we are writing the uniform guidelines, but if you have a NYS jacket, perhaps you’ll dust it off and join us?
