CORTLANDT MANOR, N.Y. - May 20, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Patriot Hero of the Hudson Valley: The Life & Ride of Sybil Ludington

Local author Vincent T. Dacquino will be available to sign copies of book

The Revolutionary War in the Hudson Valley inspired the rise of heroes and heroines alike.

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. A widow at a young age, Sybil became a successful businesswoman in a male-dominated profession and lived in the region for her remaining years.

Through family documents and correspondence, author Vincent T. Dacquino charts the incredible life and legacy of Sybil Ludington.
