The Punitive Expedtion: Mgr. Lavelle Reviewing the 69th, New York, June 21,1916

Monsignor Lavelle reviews the New York National Guard's "Fighting" 69th Infantry Regiment.  The unit, which had Civil War fame, would go on to World War One fame.  It is particularly associated with Irish immigrants and shares Garryowen, the Irish tune, with the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment.
