you can believe that Marc, me, and a bunch of b'hoys will be paying our respects to the 1st US Fire Zouaves. We do our best, and get as many guys to come along with, and follow the historical garb of the 11th NY. We had a great time at 145th Manassas, especially coming across the entire field to save your green colours
My personal goal is to have the white Fire Dept. flag of Ellsworth's Zouaves made for the event.

"(The Fire Zouaves) were in a pretty complete state of donít care a d--n, modified by an affectionate and respectful deference to their Colonel.Ē - John Hay, 1861
" ' Ellsworth! Remember Ellsworth!' was the chorused battle-cry with us all, and at each shout horsemen would fall from their horses, victims upon our altar of vengeance." -Member of Co, B, 1st NY Fire Zouaves, NY Leader, July 23, 1861.
