living historians we strive to:
- Educate the public through living history,
exhibits, school presentations and other interactions.
- Accurately depict and represent the life and
times of the original 122nd New York
Volunteer Infantry Regiment, also known as the "Onondagas",
during the American Civil War (ACW).
- The "Home" impression
will be of the 122nd NY at local events. An accurate impression
will be portrayed of commands represented at other events. An
event specific Federal impression will be the standard adhered
to as defined in uniform and authenticity standards.
- Maintain an authentic
camp atmosphere while fostering comradeship, fellowship and family
- Safely and accurately perform the drill and tactics of
the United States Army in the ACW, always striving to improve
our individual and group impression.
- Raise awareness of the state of Civil War preservation,
including artifacts, battle sites and legacies.
- Participate in fundraising

Our impression will include
an authentic citizen section. As a group and individually, we
will participate in local and national events.
