Lee during the Civil War. An Irish heritage unit, it is also nicknamed the "Fighting Irish". The Regiment’s history dates back to 1849, when it was created as the 9th Regiment New York State Militia, and A Company, 1/69 can trace roots back to the American Revolution. The Regiment has seen combat in five wars: the American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Iraq War and the Afghanistan War.

U.S.Rare M6 Bayonet and M8A1 Scabbard BAYO 295 - BAYO 295
This is the scarce M6 bayonet, being the rarest of the M4 - M7 range of bayonets. The bayonet was used on the M14 rifle when it was introduced in 1957 due to the commitment to NATO and the standard 7.62 NATO cartridge. The rifle used the standard Garand action but had a flash eliminator and therefore could not use the M5 bayonet as this fitted the gas plug on the end of the Garand. The M6 bayonet has a conventional muzzle ring to fit over the flash eliminator. The bayonet was only produced for 6 years from 1957 to 1963 being replaced by the M16 rifle and M7 bayonet making this a scarce bayonet. The bayonet is marked on the crossguard with U.S. M6 and IMPERIAL (the manufacturer). The scabbard is stamped U.S.M8A1 VIZ (Viz Manufacturing Company).
