The 124th New York State Volunteers is a Civil War era reenactment unit based in southern New York. We are a not-for-profit corporation recognized by the State of New York as an Historic Military Command, the only New York living history organization so designated.

About Us

The 124th New York is working with the staff of the Orange County Farmers Museum, in Montgomery, NY to restore one of Orange County’s great farms to its 19th century glory. With the completion of a 19th century style farmhouse, based on the Abram Brian Farm House of the Gettysburg National Military Park, and 5 period style soldier’s winter cabins, the museum has much to offer for the farm and Civil War enthusiast.
