The Juniors of the regiment
The 3rd New York Long Island Regiment is also mustering a junior regiment. We encourage all boys and girls that are not yet old enough to join the regimental line to fall in with our junior regiment and keep history alive. New recruits are always welcome and musicians are a bonus.
Drummers and fifers were essential to the regiment. Drummers played an important role on the battlefield as they served as the communication between the officers and the men-at-arms.
