A Call To Arms

July 4

  • Southampton Independence Day Parade

  • Southampton, N.Y.

Yorkers! Have a care!!

The 243 anniversary of the Continental Congressional adoption of the Declaration of Independence is to be celebrated by "... pomp and parade, with shews, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations ..." by the Village of Southampton this Thursday, 4 of July.

The 3rd NY Regiment is proud to march once again in the Islands best parade. As always the regiment will have a dining fly, tables and benches at the 1st Presbyterian Church (Main Street and Jobes Lane) for after march jolification. Hotdogs, kielbasa and kraut, soda and water will be provided by the church but please bring your favorite salads, sides, adult beverage (in period container) and desserts.

New members and Civilian Class Members are welcome to march with the column and watch the parade from our ideally located fly.

The parade leaves from Railroad Plaza and continues down North Main, Main Street, Jobs Lane and ends at the reviewing stand near Lake Agawam. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Please Sound Off and be counted for cartridges and logistical planning. Please come early to assist with camp setup. Parking is always a bear so come early and find a good parking spot. If you take the train the parade starts at the station. We will muster at Railroad Plaza at 9:30 AM.

Please note Kevin M is in the hospital again so there will not be reminder phone calls this event. Please keep Kevin in your thoughts.

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

I remain your most honorable servant,

Sgt. Andy F.
