Copy and Paste sketches in same location and orientation

So I am new(ish) to Solidworks and will be using it for work.  I am working on a project right now and I need to copy and paste a sketch and have it aligned to the origin (Essentially have it paste EXACTLY where the original is on the same plane.)  Every time I paste the copied sketch it shows up in an arbitrary  location with an arbitrary orientation and I have tried to align, add relations, move and modify the sketch to put it on top of the original.... none of those methods have worked. 


My gut tells me that what I am trying to do is 100% reasonable and doable and probably a very simple and basic thing I am just looking over.  Please assist.
