Catch the “D” Company Buffalo City Guard – Gordon Highlanders at Hofbräuhaus Buffalo on March 17th! Set times will be 8 pm and 9:15 pm.
“”D” Company Buffalo City Guard was organized in December 1837, at the time of the Caroline incident. The Caroline was a vessel in the Buffalo harbor and set afire and sunk with the loss of one life by the British. James MacKay, a leading citizen of the time, issued a call to arms and within 24 hours a unit consisting of 5 companies of 20 men each was formed, and their services were offered to the City of Buffalo. On December 30, 1837, Mayor Barker issued a proclamation accepting the unit and thus Buffalo City Guard was born. Today’s Company, though ready to serve God and Country, are not a combat organization but rather a parade organization. An organization however, steeped in tradition, with a very proud heritage passed down from those that served before us and in their honor, in parade after parade, “D” Company Buffalo City Guard Gordon Highlanders command the greatest respect and repeatedly gain the honor of being judged and awarded “First Place” in competition, adding still more glory to the illustrious history of “D” Company Buffalo City Guard Gordon Highlanders.”
