BEEKMAN, N.Y. -- Why not spend part of Presidents Day at the Beekman Library and enjoy a talk by author Vin Dacquino on Monday, Feb. 15.
The author of "Sybil Ludington: The Call to Arms" Dacquino, will speak about his book at 11 a.m, at the library, that tells the story of 16-year-old Sybil Ludington who earned a place in American history on a rainy night in 1777 when she rode 40 miles through enemy-infested woods to summon her father's regiment to halt a British raid on Connecticut and New York. Though Paul Revere is the most celebrated revolutionary to sound the call to arms, Ludington's ride was far more dangerous.
