Introducing the 76th New York

I would like to introduce you to the 76th New York Volunteer Infantry, a regiment raised from the small towns and farms of central New York State, was also known as "The Courtland Regiment" after Courtland County from where many of it's recruits came. This regiment served for three years in the Army of the Potomac and saw action in most of the actions in the eastern theatre, it did see action on the first day at Gettyburg where if suffered terrific casualties due to being one of the first units on the field.

The figures are from Perry Miniatures plastic set whilst the standard is from the Flags for the Lads range.
