The 76TH NYSVol was raised in the small communities of central New York. The unit fought valiantly through most of the battles in the eastern portion of the Civil War. The 76th served on the right flank at Gettysburg and suffered terrible losses those three sweltering days in July.
This site is dedicated to preserving the memory of the men of central New York who fought and died so far from the beautiful rolling countryside that was their home. This site is a work in progress so any suggestions, additions, or questions would be greatly appreciated. I suggest that anyone who is interested in the history of the 76th New York State volunteers, Co. H 2nd platoon please check out the unit links below. If you decide you may be interested in re-enacting this noble unit please contact either Lt. Geo. Wessling
We will be glad to help you out in this rewarding hobby.
