Antietam Wavelet on Sep 24, 1887

The New York veterans having arrived on Saturday morning were formed in line at the railroad and marched to Antietam National Cemetery headed by the Harper’s Ferry and Sharpsburg bands and the G.A.R. post of this place. Here they unveiled a statue, which they have created to the memory of their fallen comrades. The ceremonies consisted of speeches in both English and German and music furnished by the bands.
