Lincoln Day at the Forbes House in Milton

February 12 2012, the 22nd MVI and the USSC - Boston joined with our comrades in the Salem Guard to commemorate President Lincoln's birthday in Milton Massachusetts. The USSC set up their massive display inside the front parlor to entertain and educate the plentiful attendees about the works of the original Boston Branch of the relief organization, whilst the 22nd MVI and Salem Guard drilled and chatted with spectators outside about the contributions to the war effort by the troops at home. The 22nd MVI was led admirably by Brevet Lieutenant Mike Welch and First Sergeant Brad Kendall. Privates Mike Reimer, John Duprey, James and Jeff Lawrence, and two new recruits filled out the ranks; while Quartermaster Rob O'Bryan, Ordnance specialist Greg Lynes, musicians Ted Andrade and Keigan DeOliveira completed the military element. Civilians Deb DiFranco, Carolyn Dimeo, Vanessa Dautruche and Jennifer Cotie- DeOliveira staffed the USSC Boston Branch display. (My apologies to those who names the webmaster does not recall or missed.) A few images from the event are posted in our 2012 Photo Gallery courtesy of 22nd MVI photo-historian Michelle Genereux Duprey.
