112th Reunion - unknown & no date. Note the flag on the left in the photo, is this a 112th GAR flag? or is this the second battle flag of the 112th after the first was nearly destroyed and returned to Jamestown after the September 29, 1864 battle at Ft. Gilmer, VA?

112th reunion at site of old camp brown.gif

112th Reunion at the old Camp James M. Brown site - late 1800's or early 1900's.  *During the 1964 Civil War Centennial, a towering old Elm tree, located near Main St. and Brown Ave., was cut down. The Buffalo Evening News identified the tree's historic significance: "The elm....spread its branches over Camp James M. Brown more than a century ago." The double trunk elm was the last living link to the old camp, and to the memorable scenes that took place there in the summer of 1862. (text of Camp James M. Brown, Jamestown's Civil War Rendezvous, by Mark H. Dunkelman)
