A week from Thursday, on November 9, Carl Whitbeck will be giving a talk titled "The 128th NY Regiment and Columbia County Contributions to the Union Army." The event takes place, in person only, at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room at the Hudson Area Library. It is free and open to the public.

Whitbeck, a local resident whose family has deep roots in the area, has long been a student of the 128th Regiment and has donated many historical documents of the regiment’s history and the Civil War to the Columbia County Historical Society. He will be sharing his research with us in this special talk.
As part of this special evening, the Hendrick Hudson Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will be displaying the restored battle flag of the 128th Regiment.
