"We Were Marched Hither and Thither...": The 123rd New York in the Gettysburg Campaign

Michael Russert 

"We Were Marched Hither and Thither" is a fitting title for the 123rd NYS Vols. in the Gettysburg Campaign. The adventures during the month-long trek of the rural farm boys from Washington County, New York is related through their own words. A majority of primary sources and photographic images have not been used previously. On the road to Gettysburg, the provincial farm boys captured descriptive images of the landscape of Virginia and Pennsylvania. Most of these men had never been more than twenty miles from home. 

It is fascinating to read the different viewpoints of the marching citizen soldiers. For example, the accounts of the men of the execution of three deserters are interesting to compare, especially the contrast of the boys in the ranks to their commanding officer's commentary, Colonel Archibald McDougall, a lawyer by trade. The colorful commentary concerning local inhabitants along the line of march tend to be reflective, and amusing. 

The text of this study, in addition to portraying daily soldier life, provides analyses of several controversial events focused on July 1st. First, Slocum's Corps in the Pipe Creek Circular; second, The Howard/Slocum Affair; finally, the presence of Williams's Division on Ewell's flank, which prevented Confederate movement on Culp's Hill.

The majority of this study is an examination of the battle for the lower crest of Culp's Hill. The text is accompanied by ten maps created by Brad Gottfried. The use of the XII Corps by commander of the Army of the Potomac, as a mobile reserve unit that marched hither and thither is an important aspect of the narrative. The detailed account in which the Washington County boys constructed a stockade defensive wall is instructive, as is the skirmishing outside the wall once the lower crest was seized. The author has named this area, where a rare skirmish line monument was located, "The Shelf." The fascinating concluding chapter explores the manner in which the veterans selected their monument, considered one of the most artistic on the battlefield.

Unsung: An Overdue Tribute to Humble Heroines & 120 Years of Cambridge Girls Basketball

by Gerry Preece

At a time when so much seems to divide us, it is heartwarming to discover that a group of girls with our town’s name on their jerseys can remind us of our deep connectedness. 

The history of Cambridge girls basketball is one of the most wonderful stories in our town. It is a history full of courageous and talented people who overcame obstacles and achieved excellence. It is a hidden history too few of us know. It is quiet heroines and heroes who, for too long, have gone unrecognized, unappreciated, and unsung.

This is their song.

Our one hundred twenty years of Cambridge girls basketball is inextricably entwined with our town’s history and the role of women. It is a basketball history marked with periods of soaring success, painful defeat, bold achievement, times of trial and even outright oppression. But in the end, it is a story of heroines and heritage; it is a story of champions.

Author and historian Joseph Cutshall-King has been writing about the rich history of the Greater Glens Falls region for decades. Between 1994 and 2003, he wrote his "Over My Shoulder" column for the Post Star, weaving together local history, commentary, and personal memories. Aware that some of his readers dislike history more than a root canal, the columns were written with the hope they would entertain, and maybe offer history without pain. 

In addition to his columns, Cutshall-King has written four published histories and has been a co-editor and contributing author on other publications. His radio program on local history ran for a decade on WWSC AM/WCKM FM. His first foray into fiction is the historical mystery novel, The Burning of the Piping Rock

Cutshall-King lives with his wife, Sara, and an ancient cat in Cossayuna, NY, a community located in "Upstate New York" -- a nebulous phrase for an area of over 49,000 square miles.
