History Museum to Hold Annual Meeting

Will include lecture on Benedict Arnold

The Putnam History Museum will hold its annual meeting at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, followed by a presentation on Benedict Arnold and the Battle of Ridgefield.

Most people in Putnam County have heard the story of Sybil Ludington’s 40-mile ride to call out the militia in response to the Crown forces’ raid on Danbury, Connecticut. However, few know the role Benedict Arnold played during that raid and the ensuing Battle of Ridgefield. Larry Maxwell, who is the Patterson town historian and founder and director of the Living History Guild, will explain.

RSVP to Rachel at 845-265-4010, ext. 10, or [email protected]. The meeting and lecture are free. The museum is located at 63 Chestnut St. in Cold Spring.
