Please join us as we continue to celebrate our Erie County Bicentennial by honoring all of our Civil War Soldiers and also recognize our Medal of Honor recipient John McHugh. In a walking tour, period costumed actors will tell the stories of the brave men of Buffalo’s famous 1st NY Light Artillery known as Wiedrich’s Battery. This unit, made up entirely of German-Americans from Buffalo, were credited with helping turn the tide of the war at Gettysburg when they successfully stopped the advance of the Louisiana Tigers. This event will also feature displays and artifacts from the Civil War.
