First Federal (Union) Occupation

84th New York Volunteer Infantry

The 84th New York Volunteer Infantry , 14th New York State Militia.  “14th Brooklyn” were in Stafford during the First Federal Period.  They were known for their distinctive coats and red trousers.  The next slide tells their history for the entire war. Reenactors from New York regularly participate in Stafford’s “Yankees in Falmouth and some Confederates too.”  Since the 84th New York Volunteer Infantry participated in the funeral after the Falmouth Skirmish, the reenactors paid for, and placed, a historic marker at Union Church.

(The photograph was taken of the 84th New York reenactors while marching in a parade.  Can you pick them out?)
