Fifth Connecticut Volunteers

Excerpt from Fifth Connecticut Volunteers: Dedication Excursion and Reunion, at Gettysburg, August 8th, 9th and 10th, 1887 The committee were called together to locate the monument and make arrangements for the dedication at Gettysburg, Penn., May 19th, 7 P. M. Major Webster kindly came from Washington to meet the committee, and acted with them. Major E. V. Preston and Captain D. B. Hamilton were added to the committee and notified. The committee found that they were in danger of "reckoning without their host," and concluded that before deciding anything as to the arrangements, the number to arrange for be ascertained. For this purpose the circular of June 1, was arranged and circulated, setting forth the special train plan. On the 28th day of June, a second meeting of the committee was held at New Haven, and it was found that but thirty had pledged themselves to go, but it being believed that many others preferred this plan and designed to go, but for some reason had neglected to give notice of such intention, it was thought best to give a limit for such notices, and accordingly the circular of July 1, was issued. The limit of July 20, passed and but fifty-six had pledged to go by special train plan, and July 22, the committee met for the last time in Bridgeport and arranged the excursion as set forth in the programme, circulated to all members July 25, and which was substantially followed and carried out. The Assembly and Start. Before eight o'clock, August 8, comrades had commenced to assemble at the New York station of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, foot of Cortlandt Street, and from that time until nine o'clock the frequent arrival of others made it a continual reunion of veterans. Badges were here distributed bearing the red star of the Twelfth Army Corps, and the words "Fifth Connecticut Veteran Volunteers. Gettysburg, 1887."
