Talk slated on Monkton veterans who were cousins
MONKTON — The Monkton Museum and Historical Society will host an early Memorial Day presentation on Monday, May 20, at 7 p.m. at the East Monkton Church. Historian and Monkton Museum and Historical Society member Kristen B. Farrell will present a lecture and slideshow titled, “A Tale of Two Cousins.”
Henry and Herrick Hurlburt were two Monkton natives who served their country in the Civil War and World War I, respectively. Both men served and survived the wars, but died less than a year after return.
Ironically, war was among the last living experiences these men had before their untimely deaths.
A discussion of their experiences and those of soldiers like them will offer the opportunity for reflection on why we should honor all of our patriots who answered the military call when the United States of America asked.
For more information, email [email protected] or call Farrell at 802-877-2276.
Note that parking is limited along Church Road and that carpooling is recommended. Handicapped parking will be along either side of the church next to the building. Upon request, assistance with the church steps will be provided. Also, a portable restroom will be available.
