A Call Not Unheeded

New York’s Militia and National Guard, 1792-1916

A Call Not Unheeded traces the evolution of New York State’s military forces from the end of the Revolutionary War to the eve of World War I and the prominent role New York’s militia and National Guard played in many national and state conflicts such as the War of 1812 and the Spanish American War, and numerous strikes and riots in New York State throughout the 19th century.

The exhibit features a dazzling array of militia and National Guard distinctive unit dress uniforms, ballot boxes and decorative bronze trophies that interpret the social organization of the National Guard, original artifacts from the USS Maine, and a carronade captured during the 1857 Dead Rabbits Riot in New York City.
