A note from the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Fr. William Corby Division:
“The Father William Corby statue on the Gettysburg Battlefield was dedicated on October 29, 1910 and this year marks the 100th anniversary of that dedication.
“The Ancient Order of the Hibernians Division, Father William Corby Division in Fairfax Station, Virginia, will be visiting the statue on October 29th to commemorate this anniversary.
“We are planning to bring a color guard and present the colors at the statue. In
addition, we hope to have a fiddler to play a song or two, a poem recitation and a speaker to talk about our namesake. We will arrive at 10:00 a.m. and finish our program at 11:00 a.m.”
