Senator Maziarz met with a group of Civil War reenactors in Albany today, the 150th anniversary of the bombing of Fort Sumter to highlight a proclamation “to congratulate and commend the New York State Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee and other recognized statewide historic organizations for their initiative and public service in volunteering to advance the observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in the State of New York.”

 Senator Maziarz has introduced legislation to establish a commission to mark this milestone anniversary over the next four years.  Visit for more information.
