Michael J. Haugh will be gave a book talk on “The Battle of Shelburne: at Peirson’s Farm.” For more information about the book, visit: https://www.amazon.com/1778-Battle-Shelburne-Peirsons-Farm/dp/1536947881 .  Here’s a short summary:

“Almost nobody knows the captivating true story of the Revolutionary War battle between the Vermont militia and British and loyalist forces in Shelburne, Vermont.  Only one firsthand account remains of the 1778 event. It was written down fifty-five years later in a pension application. This simple document was the first clue in a historical treasure hunt for author Michael J. Haugh, MD.”

This years Shelburne School Reunion was held on Saturday, July 15th from 4-8 pm at the Shelburne Town Offices.  Over the last several years, this annual event has been our way of preserving some of the historical stories of how it was back then with the kids that grew up in the town, attended Shelburne school and graduated (last class was 1964).  This will be the last year that the current committee will be planning this annual event.
