Not far from this location, which in 1862 was part of the Wickham Farm that stretched from here to what is now the C. J. Hooker School, lays the site of the first encampment of the celebrated 124th New York Volunteers known as the "Orange Blossoms." Camp Wickham, as is was called, was located several hundred yards to the rear of this sign near what is now known as Murray Ave. Raised in Goshen in the summer of 1862 the 124th Regiment of Volunteers was muster into federal service in Goshen on September 5, 1862 and mustered out at Washington's Headquarters in Newburgh, N. Y. on June 14, 1865.
