Following Up with the Turkey Story

On the day before Thanksgiving, Gossips published a story that appeared in the Hudson Daily Star 150 years ago, on Friday, November 25, 1870, about a "regiment of turkeys" that spent Thanksgiving Day in Hudson on their way to New York City. At that time, I speculated that where the turkeys had spent the day was at the grounds surrounding 400 State Street, which at that time was the home of Captain George Power. 

An item discovered today in the Daily Star for Monday, November 28, 1870, confirmed that this was indeed where the turkeys had been "rusticating" 150 years ago.
