Lincoln’s Adirondack Avengers

Source - NY Cavalry, Not The 16th

From the Adirondack Almanack, Abe Lincoln's Adirondack Avengers...

"Several men from Clinton, Essex, St. Lawrence, and Warren counties belonged to the Sixteenth New York Cavalry. Shortly after Lincoln’s death, the troop was among the military escort at the president’s funeral. An honor, surely, but not the event that would bring them a measure of fame."

One of these men was Abram Snay, my 2nd great grand uncle.
