When Was the First St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC?

 The first known reference to any celebration of St. Patrick's Day in New York City is found in a 1756 issue of the New-York Post-Boy; the first resembling a parade, in a March 1766 New York Gazette. Irishmen serving in the British army organized the proceedings, including fife and drums at dawn—a parade of sorts—and festivities that evening.
