Author Of 'Sybil Ludington: The Call To Arms' Speaks At Beekman Library

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.

To attend, register at beekmanlibrary.org . The library is at 11 Town Center Blvd.
