Marlboro Historical Society Meeting

Sunday, October 24, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 
"The Fighting Quakers"
 
On Sunday, October 24, 2021, at 2 PM at the historic Milton Train Station, the Marlborough Historical Society of New York will host a presentation by Dr. Anthony M. Pascale entitled "The Fighting Quakers".
 
Dr. Anthony M. Pascale is a lifelong resident of Marlborough and a 1968 graduate of Marlboro High.  He earned a BS in Biology from SUNY Buffalo in 1971 and a DDS degree from SUNY School of Dentistry in 1975.  He retired in July 2021 after 47 years of practice including 12 years as a captain of the NY Guard Dental Corps USMC MALS 49 and VMGR. 
 
Dr. Pascale's local history interests date back to elementary school. From 2004 to 2008, he wrote local history, farming, and veterans articles on weekly basis for the Southern Ulster Times.  He also researched and wrote a series of articles on Quakers in Milton.  Dr. Pascale has a special interest in the Ketcham brothers and their cousin Captain Nehemiah Hallock Mann who enlisted and died in the Civil War. 
 
The Fighting Quakers: The True Story of the War for Our Union, written by A.J.H. Duganne, was published in 1866.  It tells the story of the three boys and their exploits and deaths at Gettysburg and Libby Prison.  For those interested in reading the book before Dr. Pascale's talk, you may access it online via this link:
