Chenango County history buffs preparing for Civil War battlefield tour

OXFORD – On the 150th anniversary of the infamous Battle of Gettysburg, a group of Oxford history enthusiasts will venture forth for a four-day tour of Civil War battlefields and sites.



Major highlights of the tour will focus on the 114th Regiment, NY Infantry; and the 10th Regiment, NY Calvary (two regiments which featured Chenango County citizens).

Lee tendered his resignation to Confederate President Jefferson Davis following the North’s victory at Gettysburg.

“We have a pretty extensive itinerary planned,” said tour organizer Darla Race of White Star Tours.
