The Plymouth-Exchange Neighborhood Association continues its sesquicentennial celebration of Rochester’s Civil War heritage with a River Romance Weekend commemorative event. On Saturday afternoon, October 5th, from 2:30pm until 4:00pm, the riverfront near Flint and Exchange Streets comes alive with the sights and sounds of Rochester’s role leading up to and including the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg.
Music from the Abolition and Civil War era sung a capella by the group Coreopia sets the tone for the afternoon’s historical segments. Rochester City Historian Christine Ridarsky guides the audience along a short stretch of the Riverway Trail to locations where re-enactors tell their stories. Costumed members from AKWAABA: The Heritage Associates recreate a scene from the Abolition period featuring freedom-seekers escaping from slavery. They await the presence of Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman who will guide them along the next stage of their journey. Reenactors from the 140th New York Volunteer Infantry regiment relate their experiences over the past year when they left Rochester in September 1862. Historian Brian Bennett recounts the heroism at Gettysburg in July 1863 of the soldiers who trained at Camp Fitz-John Porter. These soldiers trained at the actual locale along the Genesee River where the commemorative event takes place. Dr. David Anderson provides additional details of the contributions of Harriet Tubman. The event concludes with a live cannon-firing demonstration by Reynolds’ Battery re-enactors.
Last year’s River Romance event celebrated the 150th Anniversary of Civil War recruit training Camp Fitz-John Porter located in the heart of the PLEX neighborhood. Plymouth-Exchange Neighborhood Association President Dorothy Hall explains that “celebrating our neighborhood’s historic accomplishments goes hand-in-hand with our efforts to revitalize our neighborhood. We look forward to major positive changes in the years ahead.”
The event begins at 2:30pm and is free to the public. Parking is available in the Foodlink lot on Flint Street off Exchange Street near the river. Funding for this year’s event is made possible by the City of Rochester with technical assistance from Sector 4 CDC and the Office of the City Historian.
