The Life and Ride of Sybil Ludington
Presenter: Vincent Dacquino
Community Room, 3rd floor
Join us for this revealing look at Sybil Ludington at this book talk and signing with Vincent Dacquino. On a rainy night in 1777, sixteen-year-old Sybil Ludington mounted her beloved horse and rode forty miles through enemy-infested Putnam County to warn her father’s regiment of impending British raids. Riding twice the distance of Paul Revere and under more dire circumstances, her heroic efforts helped position the Continental army in subsequent battles.
Copies of Dacquino’s book, PATRIOT HERO, will be available for purchase and can be signed by the author at this event.
Registration is requested; drop-ins welcome.
