Editor's Note: 2012 marks the 250th anniversary of official St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the United States. The New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade, now the largest parade in the world, first marched down lower Broadway in 1762 with a group of Irish ex-patriots and Irish military serving in the British Army. To this day, a military unit has always led the parade, which has remained true to its marching roots by not allowing floats or automobiles.
